Character. Soul. Fun. It’s rare to see mass-produced cars from today’s era that can claim to have any of those characteristics but the 1957 BMW Isetta 300 Export has all three in spades. Compact and cozy, this was a simple yet effective way for people to get from A to B in stylish Italian design with German engineering. I remember seeing this in the BMW Museum, and I couldn’t help but smiling. We hope it brings a smile to you too!

The 1957 BMW Isetta 300 Export - abbreviated as BMW Isetta - is a RWD microcar by BMW featured in Forza Motorsport 6 as part of the Turn 10 Select Car Pack, and as standard in all subsequent main series titles.

Synopsis

The BMW Isetta 300 Export is an export version of the BMW Isetta 300, a variation of the Isetta micro-car, built under license in a number of countries. Because of its egg shape and bubble-like windows, it became known as a bubble car, a name later given to other similar vehicles.

Drivetrain

It features a 298 cc single-cylinder, four-stroke engine producing only 13 hp (10 kW) at 5200 rpm and 14 ft·lb (19 N·m) of torque at 4600 rpm. BMW engineers enlarged the single cylinder to a 72 mm (2.8 in) bore and 73 mm (2.9 in) stroke, yielding a displacement of exactly 298 cc. At the same time, compression ratio was raised to 7.0:1.

Platform

The Export model uses US-spec nerf bumpers and headlamps. With a weight of 920 lb (417 kg), it is the third lightest car in the Forza series after the Peel P50 and Peel Trident, respectively.[2]

Performance

As a small and underpowered economy car, it is meant to be driven casually rather than spiritedly due to having one of the lowest top speed in the series at 56 mph (90 km/h). Adding to having a weight of only 920 lb (417 kg), the Isetta is nimble around corners at very low speeds but may flip over when pushed too hard.

Its small size can be an advantage when collecting Bonus Boards in Forza Horizon 3 that are located in spaces that are too tight for normal cars to fit into. Its size may also come in handy in certain online events like Infected and King, allowing the player to hide in tight areas to either avoid being infected or keep the crown for the remainder of the game if successful.
