New models of bubble cars from Germany were the hit at the opening of the British Motor Show. In FMR's four-wheel Tg500 (£654, including tax), the driver sat alone in front, with one or two passengers behind. It did 52 mpg, and was so stable that it reportedly could not be overturned. The Italian-designed Isetta bubble car came in several models, from a two-seater 300-cc built in Brighton, Sussex (£350) to a four-seater 600-cc (£676) made in Germany.
