Designed in Italy and produced by a number of manufacturers under license, the BMW Isetta was the most successfully marketed with 161,728 units sold. In 1955, it was the world’s first mass-production car to achieve 78 MPG and the top-selling single-cylinder car in the world. Offered throughout the world, Iso SpA in Italy was owned by Renzo Rivolta and was producing refrigerators, motor scooters and small, three-wheeled trucks at the time Rivolta decided to build a small car for the mass market. Designed by Ermenegildo Preti, the Isetta was introduced in 1953, stunning the world with its bubble design and extremely unique features. In 1956, BMW revised its Isetta in response to changes in the German government driving license and tax regulations by introducing a 300cc engine. While power rose to 13 HP, the top speed of about 53 MPH remained the same. However, the increase in compression provided a boost in flexibility, especially when ascending hills.
