1959 BMW Isetta Dragster

1959 BMW Isetta with supercharged 502 Chevy V8 engine swap

Steve Urkel’s car never drove like this. This 1959 BMW Isetta was built to match a 2007 Hot Wheels model. Instead of the 12 horsepower one-cylinder engine, the Isetta has a 720 horsepower supercharged 502 cubic-inch Chevy V8. If that wasn’t ridiculous enough, the exhaust can shoot flames. It is estimated to be worth $75,000 – $100,000.
