1962 BMW Isetta Gesamt 250 (PLEXI)


47 x 27.5" Editions of 25 / 70 x 47" Editions of 9.

The Isetta is an Italian-designed microcar. Because of its egg shape and bubble-like windows, it became known as a bubble car, a name also given to other similar vehicles. In 1955, the BMW Isetta became the world's first mass-production car to achieve a fuel consumption of 3 L/100 km (94 mpg imp; 78 mpg US). Initially manufactured by the Italian conglomerate Iso SpA, the remarkable front opening windscreen/door is reputedly repurposed from a fridge they also manufactured.
