ISETTA/600 (1955-1962)

BMW didn’t design the Isetta, nor were they the first to manufacture it, but as the larger, more luxurious V8 and six-cylinder-powered cars struggled to gain a foothold in the market following BMW’s postwar reentry into the world of automobile manufacturing, the little car licensed from its Italian originator (more famous for refrigerators than cars) kept BMW afloat during some fairly lean years. With its engines based on BMW’s motorcycle offerings — one of its strong suits — the Isetta succeeded massively in a way that the big cars did not. The Isetta’s success allowed BMW to develop its own rearengined car, the 700, which in turn paved the way for the Neue Klasse sedans.

    Charterhouse, July sale / #1960 / #BMW-Isetta / #BMW /

    Isettas come up at auction relatively often but they seem to be very hard to value with some machines looking undervalued while others seem to find homes at overinflated prices. This particular example has been the subject of a full nut and bolt restoration by a previous owner to a high standard and presented well at auction. In the current ownership this charming bubble car has been used sparingly with the last tax disc being issued in April 2008. It sold for £12,760, just over its higher estimate.
