Rossignol Disco

Hi all just wondering where or if any of you have infomation on the Rossignol Disco!!!!!!

Strange-Rover told me that there were only about 100 made like this and if so they must be rare Disco's


Any info will be most welcome

I only have a sketchy memory of the Rossignols.

Basically, they came with a free pair of Rossignol snow skis when you buy the Disco. They were basically the top of the range model, had fancy decals on the door panels and I believe were only available in the 3 door format. I think they all came with Alloy wheels.

But I don't believe that they had any mechanical changes, i.e. no driveline or gearbox changes.

They did come with alloy's as standard all the one's I have seen have the same alloy's but I have'nt seen these alloys on any other Disco???

If you look at strange-rovers pic pages you will see my baby ( without alloy's )

Mornin!!

Went to the Maryborough Show last night, tested a few bundies for quality control purposes only,,,, :wink:

Had no idea there were so few made if that figure is correct,,,

posted this before somewhere,,,

only seen two colours so far, a mica maroon and a very nice green, both one-off shades, roof runners, 5 alloys, headlight & bonnet protector, special radio/cassette, bullbar with lights, supposedly skis and all the gear,
rear cargo cover.

Have never seen a diesel one 8)

I had always thought they were a type of runout special to use up the last of the 3.5's [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/sad.gif[/img]

anyone else have info?
