Bet you never saw an Isetta like this before! Well, neither have we. The three-wheel Isetta was never much of a performance vehicle, until now...

What you see here is more engine than car, featuring a 1959 Isetta essentially strapped onto a superchaged Chevy V8 502 cubic inch engine putting down 730hp, with just two gears on its manual transmission. Forced induction is handled by a BDS supercharger and the powertrain also features twin Holley 750 CFM double pumper carburetors, and Zoomies exhaust headers that shoot flames 4 feet long.

The Isetta dragster adds to its inherent Bavarian-ness with a M3 suspension system and comes with dual circuit disc brakes, AP balance bar, chromed five spoke front wheels wrapped in BF Goodrich G-Force tires. The rear wheel is 18" racing wheel with a Sumitomo HTRZ II tire.

The dragster's final total length is 12 ft. 4 in. in length

You could actually own this little monster as it's going up on auction at RM Auctions. How deep will you have to reach into your pockets? Expected auction price is between $75,000 - $100,000.
