Pairing a fashion brand known for fashionable luxury leather goods with VW's Rabbit-based Cabriolet makes for an interesting product. However, that's exactly what this cool little car is. The limited number of Etienne Aigner Cabriolets that were produced are very attractive cars, which put a bit of a spin on the economical Cabriolet. These special edition Cabriolets were offered in three colors; Midnight Blue Pearl effect, Bordeaux, and Mangrove Green Metallic like the car you see here. They came standard with cruise control, A/C, power windows, and driver's airbag. Our research shows that only 2,951 Etienne Aigner Cabriolets were produced, with only 639 having been produced for the US market in Mangrove Green Metallic.
The exterior is finished in a rich green metallic, with a black convertible top, and green interior which has striped inserts on the seats. The seat pattern looks much like what you would see as a liner in a luxury handbag, or fancy jacket. Gold “clasp” logos have been affixed to the front seats, in addition, Mr. Aigner's signature can be found on the front fenders. The convertible top was recently replaced, but was replaced with a black top, rather than the body colored top that the car would have originally had. Mangrove Green Metallic paint is in nice condition, with nice gloss and even color. The car has what many Volkswagen enthusiasts refer to as a “clipper kit” which consists of fender flares, side skirts, and front and rear bumpers which are all painted body color. The components of the “clipper kit” are in great condition. Le Castellet wheels, which are 14”x6”, are in great condition and provide a nice contrast to the green paint.
Interior trim is quite different from the standard Cabriolet. Sport seats are covered in green cloth with a striped pattern center section, and the Aigner logo is repeatedly shown along the seats as well as the door panels. Auxiliary gauges can be found in the center console right above the special holders for your cassette tapes. An aftermarket Kenwood CD player has been added, and the main gauge cluster consists of easy to read white numbered gauges. Under the hood is a 1.8L Inline 4 mated to an automatic transmission.
This limited edition Cabriolet is a car which is perfect for those who want to have a vehicle that is slightly different from what others may have. Beautiful color combinations, unique interior trim, and a fashion designer's name on the car made these Cabriolets unique. Aigner products are still sold today, which means that in addition to this car, you could probably find a few nice accessories to match. Though we don't recommend wearing Aigner accessories while working on the car, the combination of grease and Aigner leather is a fashion faux pas.
