Designer reimagines BMW's Isetta as the cute bubble car of the future

The BMW Isetta of the 1950s is one of the quirkiest models to come from the Bavarian manufacturer in its 100-year history, and now one independent designer has reimagined the original 'bubble car' for the 21st century. Created by Justin Hyunjung Cho as a ride-sharing solution of the future, the modern-day Isetta mixes the super-compact concept of the original with various design elements of modern BMW models and autonomous driving technology.
