1962 BMW Isetta

The Isetta caused a sensation when it was introduced to the motoring press in Turin in November 1953, it was unlike anything seen before. Small (only 2.29 m (7.5 ft) long by 1.37 m (4.5 ft) wide) and egg-shaped, with bubble-type windows, the entire front end of the car hinged outwards to allow entry. In the event of a crash, the driver and passenger were to exit through the canvas sunroof. The steering wheel and instrument panel swung out with the single door, as this made access to the single bench seat simpler. The seat provided reasonable comfort for two occupants, and perhaps a small child. Behind the seat was a large parcel shelf with a spare wheel located below. A heater was optional, and ventilation was provided by opening the fabric sunroof. This BMW Isetta was built in Brighton under license from BMW, as per the chassis plate, and is a genuine UK registered right hand drive example. The single cylinder 298cc engine produces 13bhp with a maximum top speed of 53mph . An interesting article in the Manchester Evening news on 24th October 1984 shows this particular BMW Isetta being presented to Sales Director Frank Johnson who was expecting a new Mercedes-Benz as his company car. This little micro car comes with a recent MOT, workshop manual and is described by the vendor as a good runner and has had £4,000 spent in the last 4 months. These Bubble cars have a strong following and are increasing in value. Note: This description is provided by the vendor and unless otherwise stated is 'Not Verified' by Barons or any person employed by Barons. Prospective purchasers are advised to satisfy themselves as to the accuracy of any statements made, whether they be statements of fact or opinion.
