*Includes Buyer Commission
Lot #705 - A beautifully restored 1957 BMW Isetta, an example of Germany's beloved, chic and cheeky "rollende ei" ("rolling egg") and the car that saved BMW from the very real threat of a Mercedes-Benz takeover during the 1950s. Mechanically, the car is virtually perfect and cosmetically, it is flawless, along with the interior. It runs and operates great and without issue. As offered, it is simply delightful, affordable and highly collectible with massive interest wherever it travels. Starts easily and runs great. 298cc/13hp 4-stroke single cylinder engine. 4-speed manual transmission.
