The Isetta was a true peoples car manufactured by various firms worldwide under license from the original creator Italy’s Iso. The most famous was of course BMW, which took the original Isetta design, developed it with their typical efficiency and skill, and gave it the blessing of their large- scale marketing efforts. BMW made the Isetta “cheap chic” which was popular among the fashion set as it was among those seeking economy.

This car is destined to become one of the best loved micro cars of all time. All Isetta’s had a sunroof to enable occupants to escape should someone park to close to the front opening door.
