Remember the 12 hp Isetta unveiled for the first time in April, 1955? BMW decided that the small Bubble car is ready for a came back! When this will happen? Not so far away! In 2010 when it will come to compete with Smart and Fiat!

The 2010 Isetta will be powered by the same rear-mounted en­gine but the output will be increased thanks to the efforts of BMW’s powertrain development team. Due to its tiny size and light weight, the new Isetta will have the lowest CO2 output of any car in BMW’s range.

The Isetta was one of the most successful microcars produced in the post-WWII years. It became known as the ‘bubble car’ because of its egg shape and bubble-like windows.

I love it! Don’t think it would be a problem with Crash test. It will probably share many components with Mini which did beautifully for safety. They will use all kinds of design trick to make it look like the original but with enough actual nose space for crash zone.

Okay...let’s get back to the reality that is crash-testing. The Isetta would fail miserably, as would any vehicle that has the occupants’ feet up against the grille. And Elvis may have had one, but so did Steve Urkel!
