The Isetta 300

The Isetta 300 is powered by a 298cc single-cylinder engine and has a top speed of 53 miles per hour. More than 160,000 were produced between 1956 and 1962. Two passengers can fit inside, and there is only one door, in front.

The car weighs 770 pounds and is 89.8 inches long. It gets 63 miles per gallon.


  1. Weirder yet...Google the Zundapp Janus. It opened like an Isetta on both ends...! Back to back seats with the engine in the middle. My Dad almost bought one of the silly things.

    1. right... but what really grabbed my attention was the 63 mpg and under 800 pounds

  2. And it may even have a comeback - sort of:

    As a kid I'd ride in the back of my uncle's Heinkel Trojan. Lovely little thing....
