This BMW Isetta 300 was ordered by the West German police in 1961 and was delivered to the authorities in Hannover, Niedersachsen, for patrolling the hamlet of Hildesheim, where it served until 1968. It is now one of only four remaining examples, and the only one outside Germany. Among its professional equipment, it features a Telefunken radio phone and Hella rotating beacon and klaxon horns as well as a flashing rear sign that requests, Bitte Folgen ('Follow Please').

Iso built the first Isetta in 1950, but BMW became the largest licensed manufacturer of the Isetta in April 1955. A year or so later, a 298cc single-cylinder model was released with a top speed, if you dared, of 53 mph. A practical rather than frivolous feature for all Isettas is the sunroof, which enables occupants to escape should someone park too close to the front door. By 1962 BMW had sold 161,728 of these little bubble cars in Germany, plus another 41,000 under license in other countries.
