LOL, nice photoshop!.. Oooh, I just imagine that was for real... XD

However, in Karl Marx's world everyone would drive these things, including cops and burghers. LOL

@ Mental: Top Gear is where it has no reverse, it also only has 1 door, it opens from the front like a refrigerator, BMW had help from Iso, an Italian based refrigerator company to design the car. LOL, It kind of looks like an old style refrigerator from the front.

@ Mental: I that's based on a hot wheels car alright. Have you ever watched that old show from the late 80s to early 90s called Family Matters?, Steve Erkel had an Isetta. lol It has no reverse gear.
