Rosengart Ariette. 1951–3 (prod. n/a). 2-door saloon, 2-door convertible, 3-door estate. F/R, 747 cm³ (I4 SV). Modern, full-width bodywork designed by Philippe Charbonneaux, but still with the Austin 7’s side-valve engine dating back to the 1920s, developing 21 PS at best. Gearbox, steering, equipment levels and ventilation were all subpar. Never sold well, as other French manufacturers offered better small cars for the price. Estate from 1952, capable of a 500 kg payload, replacing the unsuccessful Vivor. Brief production pause in 1952–3 as Rosengart filed for bankruptcy; resumed but still too few cars were sold.


Manufacturing location: Neuilly, Hauts-de-Seine, France

Marque: Rosengart | Predecessor: Rosengart Vivor | Successor: Rosengart Sagaie
