One of the car is in the museum, the BMW bubble car from 1950’s. It was called the Isetta and that picture is at above in the front of the Isetta coffee in Spartanburg SC. According to the New York Times, that BMW Isetta looks like a refrigerator on wheels, and someone put on a BMW badge. Its a not an average car, that is for sure!
However after World War II, this car was one of Germany’s premiere luxury brands. It may not seem like much today, but it is the car that the saved BMW, and made them possible to produce some of the most engaging motor vehicles of the last 60 years.
In 1955, the BMW bubble car became the world’s first mass production automobile to achieve a fuel consumption of 3 L/100 km. It was the top selling single cylinder car in the world, with 161,728 units sold.
