Name That Car- Nazi Oppression Edition

No, it's not a Zonda, but that would have been my first guess too.

It’s small, it’s got three wheels and a jaunty red-beaded convertible top, and it was built by a company that is today one of the largest car makers in the world. The question remains, what the heck is it?

      I've been to their website a few times. I recognized the place from the background.

    From the Microcar Museum site:
    "Like the rest of France's auto industry, Peugeot was forced to turn its plants over to German war production. The drawing office hummed with secret projects, among them the Voiture Legere de Ville (Light City Car). 377 were made. Speed from its electric motor, supplied by four 12V batteries under the hood, was 20 mph, and the range was 50 miles."

      I recognized the photo from late nights virtually touring the Microcar Museum. It's like crack. With every click I'm, like, "WTF?" Then I read the answer and, ahhh, my brain gets a little shot of dopamine from acquiring new knowledge. The reward system is established, thus I tour the entire friggin' museum from the comfort of my home office. And ignore work for a good hour or two.
      I believe I found the Microcar Museum one night after Googling "Goggomobil."
