The car competed at Brooklands in the Easter Monday Meeting in 1923 and achieved a flying lap of 62.40mph.

Iso Autoveicoli manufactured the Isetta, but BMW redesigned the manufacturing plant in 1954. In the Mille Miglia road race that took place in the same year, the BMW Iso Isetta secured the 177th position. It was the last car to cross the finishing line.
Rolls Royce Corniche
This model was launched in two versions, one being the hardtop coupe that was seen from 1971 to 1980 and the second being the convertible one that lasted from 1971 to 1995. Rolls-Royce was among the luxurious brands, and the Corniche model had the popular V8 engine.
BMW M3 E30
