1/16 BMW® Isetta Plastic Model Kit
Product ID: 80-7030
Skill level: 3
Length: 154 mm
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. Kit features opening door with steering column, 250cc engine, rotating wheels, and lots of plate decal options.
