THIS IS PROBABLY one of the smallest cars in the world. It is the "Isetta". They sold large numbers of them in Europe and elsewhere in the world - just not in the USA. It would be laughed off the road. "Isetta" is the first "Microcar" created in Italy, and built on license in several countries. The BMW Isetta was the most popular with 161,000 sold. It took 30 seconds to reach 31 mph / 50 kmh. It was made from 1953 to into the early 1970s.
