This three-wheeled cutie in his time was saved from bankruptcy by BMW: while competitors were selling expensive models, the Germans managed to realize 160 thousand copies of these beauties. Thus it was possible to improve the difficult financial situation of the company after World War II. Isetta is primarily characterized by modest size (it fits only 2 people) and the fact that it is the only door there, where is the hood of modern cars. In other words, the steering wheel moves in the car together with the door. I would like to ride in that?
2. Mohs Ostentatienne Opera Sedan
Company owner Bruce Mohs Mohs created this model to show how the model should look like a sedan. The main feature of the machine - no doors.

This idea has not caught on: all were released 6 or 7 of these cars. Still, after passenger car should be not only luxurious but also practical.
The name of the crumb - a composite of English words twin (double) and bike (bicycle). It is a hybrid car that can go either through the electric motor, or - man. Inside mounted pedals that can cause twisting 246-kilogram car moving. Manufacturers believe that such heavy physical activity the human body so heated that the car does not even need a stove. It seems that a compromise in the age-old dispute between motorists and cyclists.

When Germany after World War II, forbade aircraft company Messerschmitt had to switch to something else. Soon he saw the light of the first car of the concern - KR175, which the Germans called scooter cab. Three-wheeled machine had wheel more like the same by bicycle or motorbike, and two seats: one after the other. Apparently, the Germans were missing for the possibility of flying freely: all were sold more than 20,000 of these models, remotely resembling a winged transport.

The price of the future of small scale models proved to be overwhelming: 1, 8 million US dollars. The release of such expensive considered impractical, so the production has not been started.

Japanese as always surprise with their originality. This machine is very similar to the rhinoceros because of settling down on the hood of a spare wheel. Depending on how the model can be double or calculated only on the driver.
8. Peel P50

This baby was not only easy, but also economical: fuel consumption - only 2, 8 liters per 100 kilometers. In addition, the vehicle was also provided with a rear handle. With this machine you can drag into the house or garage.

The ride accommodates two people: the passenger seat is behind the driver and can even be adjusted in height. By the way, a full charge of this miracle from the usual socket takes only 3, 5 hours. Technique on the verge of science fiction!
10. Bong Bug 700E
Double three-wheeled model had one door. And, to get inside the machine, it was necessary to raise the upper part of the body. Several copies of this car were produced specifically for the advertising of tobacco company Rothmans. Apparently, only for promotions and it fits.
