Sbarro Citroën Grand Ranger, Calao 

In 1997, Sbarro went to work on the Berlingo.  Unlike the Coupé de PlageBulle or Grand Large , the Grand Ranger is an unalloyed luxury vehicle.

Francesco Sbarro was born in Presicce, Italy in 1939 and moved to Switzerland in 1957.  Between 1959 and 1961, he owned a Borgward Garage, between 1961 and 1963 he owned a BMW agent and then between 1963 and 1967 he was the head mechanic of the Filipinetti race team.  In 1968 he formed ACA (Ateliers de Construction Automobiles) in Grandson, opening a small factory there in 1978 and opening his design school in 1992.
