If you really need BIG, get an elephant !

This tiny bubblecar, the Isetta,

was first developped by Italian company Iso (remember the Grifo ?).

 

Between 1955 and 1962, however, it was also built by BMW,

next to their superexpensive 503 and 507 etc...

What's more...

this little bubble was the only thing that kept the bavarians from going bust !

 

If it wasn't for this, your fancy modern Beemer would never have existed !
