Model History
This small car is powered by a 2-cylinder 582cm3 engine, which produces 26 hp. The power is delivered to the front wheels via a 4-speed manual gearbox. An automatic transmission was available as an option. The car was manufactured from 1957 until 1959 and there were nearly 35 000 cars that left the factory. The car was designed as an alternative choice for BMW motorcycles owners, who wanted to have a small car, which could be also as easy as their motorcycle. Basic idea behind the Isetta was, that the car should be as easy-to-drive through city as possible. Isetta’s distinctive feature was a single door installed in the front and a second door on the right side of the car. The engine was in the back. The successor was called model 700.
