Double Bubble…

Spotted a couple of class Messerschmitts on eBay. I’ve always really liked these ‘bubble cars’ – although I prefer the German term “Kabinroller” – which literally translates as “cabin scooter”. Red-KR200_Hero

The first Messerschmitt KR 200 is a 1963 UK car, with the desirable plexy glass roof in exceptionally nice condition. on eBay for £25995.

The second one is few years older – dating from 1959 and finished in original Coral paint. The interior is finished in cream upholstery together with an original style rubber floor mat. The car has some nice detailing with chrome torpedo and tail lights and refinished wheels with whitewalls. On eBay for £21,995.

I like a microcar. I think, given the price of petrol at the moment, and the need to be more eco concious, it’s a bit mad that most people still drive around, alone in a vehicle designed to carry four or more people.

I’ve posted about the Morgan Threewheeler  and the Bond Bug, as well as The Smite before, a modern re-imaginging of the Messersmitt KR200.
Well, here is a fantastic brochure I have found for the original Messerschmitt.

I think it’s in Spanish, maybe if I get five minutes I’ll have a go with Google Translate and post some of the copy in English. In the meantime, enjoy the glorious period graphics.
I found it here.
