Top 10 Craziest Vehicles at the 2014 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction

2. 1959 BMW Isetta

Steve Urkel  never drove anything like this. Based on the Hot Wheels “Whatta Drag” toy car from 1998, this BMW Isetta has undergone a complete transformation. In the back now sits a 502 cubic inch supercharged Chevrolet V8 pumping out 730 hp. In contrast, the Isetta originally came with a 14 cubic-inch one-cylinder engine making less than 10 hp.

Increasing a cars horsepower by 7,684 percent does have some consequences and the auction posting states “it is important to emphasize that this car is strictly for show and not to be used for road or track, the massive amount of torque produced by the Chevrolet 502 engine can be dangerous if driven improperly.”

    To me, the reviewer is way off on his interior comments, and seems like a case of how some narrow journalists follow the old, comfortable GM-review script. I think the Camaro’s gut is clearly the best and most modern of the pony cars, and they’ve made some updates to add more soft touch surfaces, plus the new center console screen with available nav brings it fully up to date. It’s also the only one with a HUD, which is great to have. The console-mounted secondary gauges are still ultra cool, and the overall design is well integrated and harmonious. The seats are beautiful, and the feel of sitting in one to me conveys quality. Much more so than either the Mustang or Challenger.

    Dig the review. Dig the car. I just wish I could afford one. *sigh.

    Disagree wholeheartedly with you about the seats there Bob… The GT500 hugs you a lot more, and the ZL1 seats are nothing special, especially not for such a special car. Agreed that the HUD is awesome – all powerful cars should have it.

    Looks Good! But way over price!!! The Mustang GT 2013 vert. is a value! Stang also has killer looks plus the inside looks way better than the Camaro, period!

    omg mustangs are complete junk. ugliest car on the market. i would rather drive a fugly FIAT then a mustang..or put a gun to my head. you have got to have air in your head to ever even consider buying a piece of sh*t FORD. you want a REAL car?…then get a camaro zl1 or z/28. now those are real cars buddy. Until you get the opportunity to sit in a Camaro Z/28 and drive it don’t open your cumfilled mouth again.
