Nicknamed the "rolling egg", the BMW 250, 300, 600 and Isetta cars were designed at a time when cheap, short distance transportation was needed.

In classic understatement, BMW ads for the USA called the car "a new conception in vehicle design."

The cars have a one-cylinder BMW motorcycle engine with a 4-speed transmission. The top speed is 53 mph, and it gets 63 miles per gallon. 

In 1958 you could buy one for $1,093.
