Isetta - The Most Popular Micro-Car

Thu, 10 Nov 2011 13:47:00 +0000

The Isetta is primarily known as a BMW but it was designed by Iso (Isetta means little Iso) and licensed to BMW and to VELAM in France and Romi in Brazil in the mid-1950s. It was a successful model for BMW, they produced approximately 161,000 Isettas from 1955 to 1962.The Isetta was also a success for Iso because the financial arrangements allowed Iso to move on to the creation of GT cars starting with the Iso Rivolta GT and then the Iso Grifo along with a few other models. Iso was a manufacturer of scooters after WWII and so the first version of the Isetta had a one cylinder scooter engine. The door incorporated the steering wheel and dashboard so that the driver could drive front first into a curd side parking and open the door and step out directly onto the sidewalk (the steering wheel and dashboard moved out of the way with the door). This is a very small car and it takes up less than half of the space of most other cars.These little cars have been showing up at auctions and classic car dealers more frequently in the last few years as they are becoming more appreciated as a part of automotive history.There are three Isettas for sale now on eBay, including this one below.The Isetta below is for sale at the RM Auction at Amelia Island on March 12, 2011.Click on the images for a larger view.The Isetta is stylish too.[...]

Bmw 635

Sun, 11 Sep 2011 14:52:00 +0000

 Bmw 635BMW is a company with a long tradition of participation in motorsports. In the 1970’s, the CS and CSi version of the BMW 3-series had found success as lightweight racers on several different circuits. In the 1980’s, BMW wanted to continue the performance concept with a slightly larger coupe that would be a good fit between their midsize sedan, the 5-series, and their large car, the 7-series. The E24 chassis was born, and with it the 6-series sedans. One of the most powerful versions of this vehicle was the 1989 BMW 635 CSi. Bmw 635The BMW 635 was visually quite distinctive. The front of the car jutted out over the bumper, giving the grille and headlights a reverse rake and lending the vehicle the nickname of ‘the shark’. The car’s rear deck sloped down to a flat trunk offset by a horizontal lip wing. The car also shared the same circular quad headlights that had been a BMW trademark for decades. The big coupe was powered by the 3.5 liter M30 engine, which in the 635 CSi produced 215 horsepower and 232 lb-feet of torque – quite impressive by the standards of the day. The 635 CSi found direct competition in the Porsche 928, which was powered by a 300 horsepower V8. This gave it superior performance to the BMW, but the lack of anything more than vestigial rear seating put it behind the 6-series in terms of interior comfort. Leather seats, dual-zone climate control and a well-developed suspension helped make the ride of the 635 CSi a fine balance between sport and performance. Bmw 635This is not to say that the 635 CSi was a slouch in the performance department. The coupe could reach 60 miles per hour in 8.4 seconds and had a top speed of 135 miles per hour. A trailing arm rear suspension kept the car stable during high-speed cornering, despite the significant 3300 lb weight of the car. The 635 CSi could be had with a 4-speed automatic or 5-speed manual transmission. The BMW 635 CSi continued on the tradition of the 3-series on the race track, winning the 24 hours of Spa-Francrochamps and several European Championship races during the campaign of Schnitzer Team BMW. The driver was Gerhard Berger, who would go on to become BMW’s Director of Motorsport. Bmw 6351989 was the final year for the 635 CSi, and it was considered the best year from an aesthetics perspective, at least in North America. American crash regulations had historically been stricter than those found in Europe, and as a result many of the European cars that had been imported had also been refitted with ugly steel bumpers which stuck out like a sore thumb in the front and the rear. For 1989, BMW was able to fit the 6-series with reinforced bumpers that also molded into the lines of the vehicle, greatly improving the overall look. Bmw 635When production ended in April in 1989, BMW decided that the next iteration of their coupe would be much larger, with an emphasis on luxury instead of sport. The 8-series would take its place in the BMW model lineup, but it would have a much shorter run than the 6-series, as buyers were disenfranchised with the lackluster performance offered at such a high price tag. The 8-series was even heavier than the 6, and despite being equipped with a V8 and an optional V12 engine, there was no mistaking it for a serious performance vehicle. BMW put the coupe out of its misery after only a few years of production, waiting until the mid-2000’s to re-introduce a large coupe. This time, they used the 6-series moniker again and found much greater success. Bmw 635 Bmw 635 Bmw 635 Bmw 635Bmw 635[...]

Nissan Recovery Stories

Wed, 03 Aug 2011 15:03:00 +0000

At 2:46 in the afternoon on March 11, an unprecedented disaster struck Japan, claiming over 24,000 lives and threatening the safety and livelihoods of millions in the country.For Nissan, some five staff and 17 family members perished in the devastating 9.0 magnitude earthquake and tsunami, with more than 50 dealerships and parts suppliers damaged, as production across Japan shut down completely.At the Yokohama headquarters, which felt the quake although 250 kms away, an Earthquake Crisis Committee of executives met within minutes, but the magnitude of destruction and potential impact on Japan and Nissan had no blueprint.The response would test the resilience and imagination of company staff, with heroes emerging to help lead Nissan, its many customers and stakeholders to safer ground.For Miyagi branch manager Hiroyuki Sato, who lost two staff and was himself listed among missing after the tsunami struck, a slow evacuation from the disaster zone gave insight into how great its impact.“I had seen the tsunami with my own eyes from the coastal town of Onagawa, and roads were now covered with debris and impassable. On the fourth or fifth day... I could finally contact the office by cell phone, and when my boss answered, he exclaimed: "You're alive." I apologized for worrying others, and then I contacted the dealer president and other executives to tell them that I had survived. I learned about the status of our customers, the dealership and the showroom.”Amid the growing tragedy, commitment to those losing cars and family mobility remained top priority, while the company offered Nissan LEAFs and other vehicles to relief efforts.Masaki Kobayashi, president of Nissan Prince Miyagi, said resources were deployed to deal with the crisis and help those most in need.“Miyagi Prefecture is very big and the area near the ocean felt the brunt of the tsunami, while other areas basically just endured the earthquake. We have 26 car outlets, and there was tremendous damage at five new and two used car outlets. We tried to get vehicles from centers like this to the coastal and damaged areas, while also looking to come up with a recovery plan, but at the same time, gasoline supplies became thin. Our customers and our own staff couldn't drive around, and this went on for two weeks. It became very important to direct all company resources in the same direction.”Slowly, vehicles made it to the disaster zone, while at the Iwaki factory in Fukushima, General Manager Nobuhiro Ozawa and team faced their own extensive structural damage.Ozawa's plant produces over 370,000 Nissan and Infiniti engines yearly, and Iwaki's "Gambappe" recovery -- even after a second quake struck in early April -- became a symbol of Japan's resilience amid the tragedy.“Everyone was safe -- we were lucky. Our factory infrastructure, though, except for electricity, was completely down with damage very serious. Skylights, cables and apparatus hung from the rafters, and we really couldn't enter the factory immediately. We thought it would take a very long time to recover.“That moment came mid-May, marked by a return Iwaki visit by CEO Carlos Ghosn.However, Nissan's parts and car pipeline had faced an equal test after the earthquake.A huge vessel with 600 Nissan LEAFs left Yokohama just before disaster struck, but Japanese ports and highways were then closed, with cars and auto parts for export or transfer destined to sit without resourceful action.At the logistics centers of Honmoku, Kyushu, Aichi and Fuji, which see 400 container shipments daily, the lockdown of the supply pipeline became General Manager Kiyoshi Onoe's problem to solve.After immediately ensuring his team a[...]
