You just don’t see Cabriolet’s this nice, this one is a ’91 Etienne Aigner Edition. This was a one year only production run in the states with less than 1,500 coming to our shores. The EA came in Bordeaux, Green Metallic, and Midnight Blue each with their own unique interior. This edition never went over very well as the EA name was far better known in European markets.
From the seller -

Sure it is slow, handles like a refrigerator, and will never be accused of being a driver’s car but at $6k ‘ish it provides a great deal of open air motoring for the money. This particular cabby has very low miles does not cost an arm and leg to maintain.
While I was doing a bit of research I did come across a bit of concern. In hot climates the horseshoe logo on the front seats can act much like a branding iron, so be careful with that one. Other than that little annoyance this Cabriolet looks like a great value.
