This car was designed by a man who made refrigerators in Italy.


isetta logo1

The BMW badge is on the car because Isetta licensed it to be made in Germany.

The Isetta two wheels in the front and two in the back. A few were produced for England, where they only had one wheel in the back, and the reason for that is that in England, in you only had three wheels, you paid mortorcycle taxes for registration.

The US model had lerger headlamps and "nerf" bars, which met US regulations for bumpers.

Isettas are called Micro cars and were all built in Europe, right after WW2. They all came with a cloth sunroof.

BMW is one of the most respected institution in the automotive industry. I just hope that they will continue to expand and retain their name on the top of the industry.

I agree with brin that BMW is one of the most respected car manufacturer in the industry. Having a car blog like this helps the car enthusiasts to know how BMW was born.
