The Original Smart Car – The BMW Isetta

BMW actually made the first smart car, the Isetta.  Ok, it’s perhaps not the first small car made for city driving, but it is certainly the coolest one.  I mean, what other car like this has so much personality?  You get in from the front??  What were those clowns at BMW thinking?  Well, they were thinking genius thoughts, I’d say.  Genius!!  What a completely fun car to drive, and be seen driving in, right?  Yep, it kinda is a clown car.  Even back in the day, I’m sure they were turning heads.  Today, this wonderful machine, a completely restored, mint condition 1956 BMW Isetta continues to make people smile:  it spreads joy wherever it goes.  Now, that’s a smart idea for car design.

  1. Now I have to admit something about my age but I still remember to have seen a few of these when I was a child, more or less 60 years ago 🙂
