In the 50s, BMW owes its survival to the Isetta 300, produced under license.
Despite interesting sales of a few dozen vehicles a year, the company does not have four-seater models to offer …
Indeed, the 300 Isetta is only two places, which prevents BMW from being present on the market of the popular cars and thus of the four places, most important in this period of post-war period.
The idea is to launch a new model with few means.
In addition, a poor estimate of the cost of production of Isetta no longer allows BMW to make profits.
Thus, BMW declines the Isetta in a four-seater designed by Michelotti.
Featuring an impressive front bumper highlighting the front, thinner amounts and a flat twin 582cm3 (19.5ch) attached to a box with four synchronized ratios.
Unfortunately, the success will not meet the changing demands for larger vehicles like the ladybug.
Produced from 34813 copies from 1957 to 1959, it will give way to the 700 which will allow BMW to see sales take off again.
It is therefore a rare BMW 600 Isetta to restore.
The French “carte grise” is up to date on behalf of the seller.
The car is complete with its engine running and its manual gearbox in working order. the clock displays around 72,000 km (45,000 miles).
The car needs a complete restoration, there is corrosion on the rear wings and the seller provides a floor and other new parts that will help this restoration.
A rare vehicle that deserves all our attention for its offbeat and exclusive side!
Its price: 10 000 €
