1957 BMW Isetta 300. Four Wheeled Right Hand Drive. Designed and built by Italian fridge manufacturer Iso, the Isetta caused a sensation when it was lunched at the Turin Motor Show in November 1953. Unlike anything seen before, not only was it small (only 7.5ft long by 4.5ft wide) and egg-shaped with bubble-type windows, but the entire front end of the car hinged outwards to allow entry and exit. The steering wheel and instrument panel also swung out with the door as this made access to the single bench seat easier. The Isetta soon captured the attention of BMW who made a deal to design and manufacture their own version of the car under licence. BMW quickly made many changes, including a new 247cc single-cylinder four-stroke engine, borrowed from the BMW R25 motorcycle, that made 12bhp and boosted top speed to around 50mph. In 1956 they fitted longer side windows and a larger 298cc engine to produce the BMW Isetta 300, now with a heady 13bhp and improved torque that made hill climbing a little easier. The other stroke of genius that came from the German firm was to fit two wheels at the rear of the car and thus give it some much-needed stability. This is a 1957 model that was imported from South Africa. It is rare in being a RHD model (although in a car of this size, right and left are theoretical concepts) and its rarity is increased by being fitted with a boot rack and a panoramic sunroof (which also doubles as emergency escape hatch). The car is astonishingly sound due, no doubt, to the South African climate, and has had further attention since arriving in this country. The Isetta starts and runs well and on a local test drive due the attention of all who saw it with smiles and waves. Just waiting to be enjoyed by its new custodians it would make a welcome addition to any garage or private collection. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. All major debit cards accepted.
