Revell Germany Model Cars 1/16 BMW Isetta Car Kit
Make it weird enough and somebody will buy it. With seating for two very close passengers, a motorcycle-derived engine, and a flap-open front door, the Isetta was a design quirk for the century. Add in the vehicle's 30 second 0-30 mph transition and its top speed of roughly 47 mph, and getting behind the wheel is far less appealing than setting a model on the shelf. The saving grace for the Isetta, besides its novelty, was its economy. At up to 58mpg, the Isetta was incredibly fuel efficient for the fifties.
