Known as the BMW Isetta, the tiny unconventional automobile was introduced at the 1953 Turin/Italy Auto Show.In 1955 BMW bought the name and the manufacturing rights from the original Italian designer, ISO, and started to produce the Isetta in Germany. Only 7.5feet long and 4.5 feet wide. Bubble-type windows, the entire front end of the car hinged outwards to allow entry, the steering wheel and instrument panel swings out with the door. An Emergency Exit for driver and passenger was provided by a canvas sunroof.
In 2007â€“ 2009 this Isetta 250 was completely restored in Germany by a BMW master mechanic and then sold to a collector in the USA. He bought the Isetta to make it part of his private Museum/Collection.
