In 1978, the model range of Arola 3-wheelers was increased by the new model SP, which was technically closely related to the Arola Type 12, which was further developed in parallel. The Arola SP does not stand for “Sport” but for “Super Practical”. The vehicle was in the remaining same dimensions 2275 mm long. To meet that purpose, additional length went completely into a tiny pickup bed. The SP was built until 1982, together with the Type 12.
