This car was built as tribute to an hot weels model, as you can see from the spoiler. Here you can see the model: http://www.ioffer.com/i/hot-wheels-2000-213-whatta-drag-orange-isetta-5sp-1-64-518179014

I could be very wrong... but. I think this car was used in a episode of the TV show Family Matters and Urkel, drove this car "not really" to promote anti street racing amongst the youth. Again I could be wrong.

Rear axle is driven by chain? That's nearly impossible to transfer such an amount of torque. I guess that's why it cannot be driven.

"strictly for show...shouldn't be used on roads or track....can be dangerous if driven improperly." These are called words of encouragement. Looks fun. I'm up for the challenge!

Dragster is to the USA, however they should have used a BMW supercharged motor, to really call this a BMW Isetta dragster. You got the old M Power V8 or the V10.
