What is the BMW Isetta 250?
This cult-classic radio controlled car is a must have. The quirky little BMW ‘motocoupe’ comes complete with its unconventional ‘bubble car’ design, straight from the 1950s BMW Isetta 250 microcar. Featuring model-grade detailing, this miniature car has working front and rear lights that give it that lifelike feel as you cruise across your sitting room floor.

How does the BMW Isetta 250 drive?
The full function remote control allows you to drive forwards, backwards and steer left and right, allowing you to drive the BMW Isetta 250 up to 9mph, across surfaces at 4 metres a second. The controller requires six AA batteries ands the car has an internal battery that can be charged from the controller. The remote can run off alkaline or rechargeable batteries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent little car. Good price! I bought this for my 4 year old son and he loves it. Drives quickly and is very sturdy. Needs charging frequently due to size but this is understandable. Worth it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from dead in 12 hours Ignore some of the specs - doesnt take 12ins to charge or need a 9v battery. The car charges from the remote in about 10 mins and rus for about the same time. BUT this one stopped running very soon after purchase and was returned for a refund. Its a really nice looking design with head and tail lights and rear steering which makes it very cute. But the car stopped working almost immediately.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hi As I bought this a short time ago it arrived in the time you stated. On opening the box there was a rattle from inside, further investigation revealed a broken mount holding the model in place also a broken battery lid (one clip snapped). the Perspex cover chipped !!! Not an expensive toy but not as expected.
