BMW ISETTA

2-seater sunroof coupÈ.

Archetypal bubble and sometime correct wear for the Kings Road. Rolltop convertible with swing-up front door and jointed steering column attached thereto. British production (at Brighton) consisted of three-wheeler versions, though the original article was a narrow-track four-wheeler with differential-less back end; engine is BMW motorcycle unit. Cheap fun.
