A very small car making its way around the city of Nafplio Greece, is turning heads. It is believed to possibly be the world’s tiniest car.
The attention grabbing car is the legendary BMW Isetta 300, which was manufactured in 1958 in Germany. After an adventurous journey, this car ended up in the ownership of Kostas Dimoulis of Nafplio. When Kostas took possession of the vehicle, it was practically a wreck, he stated to the Athens News Agency. He reconstructed it with effort and enthusiasm, gathering a lot of attention when he first drove it around town.
Renzo Rivolta, who was an Italian engineer inspired the making of this vehicle. When he bought the ISO vehicle firm, he decided to show everyone his creations, beginning with scooters and then, in 1952, created the Isetta, which was characterized as the most beautiful and most famous of all microcars. It was presented for the first time in the Turin Auto Show, but got a major boost when BMW acquired the rights and started manufacturing it from 1953 to 1958.
