Microcars were born of the need for cheap short-distance transportation in the post-war years. The most successful was the Isetta, whose origins lay with the Italian firm of Iso SpA (Isetta is Italian for 'little Iso'), who went on to build some 1,000 or so. Many more were manufactured under licence in France, Belgium, Brazil, Britain and Germany, where they were manufactured by BMW, who made the model their own. Indeed, they re-engineered so much that none of the parts between a BMW Isetta and Iso Isetta are interchangeable. The 300 model was introduced in 1956, the obvious difference being the increase in capacity from 250cc to 298cc, raising output from 12bhp to 13bhp. While the torque improved, the top speed remained the same at 53mph.
