The BMW Isetta - at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in an exhibit entitled, Art of Two Germanys/Cold War Cultures. From the Los Angeles Times.
Classic car buffs may be more interested in the Isetta, a little runabout produced by BMW in the 1950s and early 1960s. “Powered” by a one-cylinder, 13-horsepower modified motorcycle engine, the Isetta bears little resemblance to the high-performance machines BMW is known for today.
Based on an Italian design, the Isetta was an odd-looking egg — in fact, Germans called the car “the rolling egg” because of its ovoid shape.
