If we would ask you to mention the strangest cars that appear in movies, you might be able to name a few. Just think of the Batmobile or DeLorean.
10. Messerschmitt KR200
The Messerschmitt KR200 is a three-wheel dwarf car designed by engineer Fritz Fend. The car was produced from 1955 to 1964 and even featured the speed record for three-wheel vehicles. It reached a speed of 103 km / h. Fritz Fend was originally an aviation engineer and that is clearly visible in this design.
9. Davis Divan
Another special tricycle is the Davis Divan. This was built between 1947 and 1949 by the Davis Motorcar Company. The tricycle was never produced in large numbers. This was not the case for the car, but the manufacturer did not manage to deliver the cars to the dealers who ordered him and did not pay his staff. Eventually, the company was pulled by both groups before the court and convicted. As a result, only 13 Davis Divans were created, of which there are still twelve.
8. BMW Isetta

TOP 10 STRANGEST CARS EVER CREATED
The Second World War led to a march of small cars in the years after which there was a shortage of material. One of the most popular small cars was the BMW Isetta, a three-wheeled car with the front door. You can laugh at the small cars, but they showed futuristic design with their cockpit-like body and convex windows.
7. Nissan S-Cargo
Speed records will not break this van. The Nissan S-Cargo does not look like a snail on wheels, but it also drives. The name S-Cargo (Escargot) already betrays a lot. It’s got a bit of a Citroën 2CV. The car is ever made in the many cars of the ugliest car.
6. Bond Bug
The Bond Bug is not the car of secret agent James Bond, even though this mini-car would make sure he remained unnoticed. This car series was produced as Funcar by Reliant Motor Company. The Bond Bug was often used by motorcyclists and young drivers because you only needed a motorcycle license.
5. Stout Scarab
The Stout Scarab is considered by some to be the very first minivan. This car was designed in the 1930s and was innovative in many areas. Not only was it one of the first cars that consisted of fiberglass, but it also had a streamlined design. An unusual feature of the Scarab is that the wheels were located in the corners of the car. Until today there are five Scarabs, two of which are scheduled to run.
4. Amphicar Model 770
The Amphicar Model 770 is an amphibious vehicle from the sixties. You are reading well, with this car you could drive both on the street and take off the river. Despite its great advantage of avoiding files, the car was not manufactured long. After seven years production was shut down in 1968.
3. Ferrari 512S Modulo
Unfortunately, it has remained a concept, this futuristic model of Ferrari: the 512S Modulo. This extremely low tire (a height of not more than one meter) is the ultimate model in aerodynamics. Not for nothing, he achieves a top speed of 350 kilometers / hour. However, this car was already built in the seventies. The carriage is so low that the roof has to slide in front so that you can board in.
2. General Motors Firebird I, II, III, IV
The Firebird is a four-figure prototype designed in the fifties. General Motors has never had the intention of putting these cars into production but used these prototypes to demonstrate what the company was capable of in terms of technology and design. In the design, inspiration was gained from the fighter aircraft of that time.
1. Peel P50
Whoever reads the story about the Peel P50 would think it was invented. For example, the car weighs only 59 kilograms and had a top speed of 61 kilometers / hour. However, it was advised to drive this speed due to the low stability of the car. Backward driving was impossible with the Peel P50. Those who wanted to drive backwards had to get out, lift the car and manually turn with a lever for that purpose. No wonder that only 47 pieces were built. The car got a lot of celebrity thanks to the following Top Gear topic.
