1958 BMW Isetta 300

Its name meaning 'little Iso,' the Isetta was designed and first manufactured by the same Italian firm that later produced the exotic Iso Rivolta, Iso Fidia and Iso Grifo. The Isetta was also built under license by both Velam in France and BMW in Germany and is credited as being the car that saved BMW. While exported to America, their small size, poor performance and unusual appearance made them an unpopular alternative to other economy cars and few were sold. Other cars that competed against the BMW in the 'micro-car' market segment included the German Messerschmitt, Italian Fiat Bianchina, and the French Mochet Velocar.

It was produced during/after WWII as an alternative to the Volkswagen bug. This vehicle was produced from 1955-1962.
