1958-1959 BMW 600 specificationshttp://www.classicandperformancecar.comClassic and Performance CarClassic and Performance Car
Following on from the original Isetta, the BMW 600 was a logical upward extension of the theme to capture buyers who’d grown out of their original bubble cars. The front-opening door remained in place, but the new car was larger, with an extra side door for rear seat passengers, a more powerful 600cc BMW flat-twin motorcycle engine and – most importantly – four wheels. It was usefully quicker than the original Isetta but still crude for the price tag, being only marginally cheaper than a Beetle. Sales were unimpressive.
