Disney BMW Isetta

1958 BMW Iso Isetta

This little car is also known as the "rolling egg" in the 50s. Although this is a little car that looks like a scooter, this micro car actually save BMW then from bankruptcy then.

To be honest, I never fancy a Tomica Disney Motor (and I still don't), the only reason I bought this DM-17 is because it looks suspiciously like the Isetta I mentioned above. The Isetta comes in many variations like the "sedan" above, cabrio, truck, 3 or 4 wheelers etc.

The main difference between the Isetta and the DM is the door. Isetta doors is facing against the driver while the DM uses conventional doors like most cars.

2 "Isetta" per box

3 Wheelers just like a 3 Wheelers Isetta


  1. Well, I don't want to argue with you, but for me it is looks much more like a Messerschmitt KR175 or KR200. Not like this means anything... 8-)

  2. It's the Chip and Dale DM 2 car set! Now this makes me wanna get back in collecting DMs.

    Thanks for sharing Jedi. =)

  3. Hi Sam,

    I am open so not to worry. I have to agree with you after doing some research in the internet. Only that I only know Isetta rather than the Messerschmitt.

  4. Hey Jovet,

    You are welcome. To be honest, now I wonder why I buy them. He he.
