This 1959 BMW Isetta 300, finished in Japan Red over Ivory, presents extremely well and any collector or BMW aficionado will be proud to own it. The car’s origins were in Milan, Italy at the scooter and refrigerator company of ISO SpA, run by Renzo Rivolta. Called Isetta, or little Iso, the car was a startling, totally unconventional design that caused a furor at its introduction in Turin, Italy in November of 1953. From this influential debut, the brand was licensed to BMW of Germany, where it was viewed by BMW as filling a gap between their motorcycles and the luxury 501 models. The quirky little motocoupe, as it was called by BMW, became the dream of the working man.
