2008 Harrington BB

2008 Harrington BB new
Nathan Redfearn is the CEO of, a Saigon-based mail-order manufacturer of parts for vintage BMW Isetta microcars. He also runs the Harrington Group, which produces components for Aston Martin and Ferrari classics. He recently gave us a shout to let us know about his latest venture - the Harrington BB - an electrically powered BMW Isetta reproduction.
The BB includes an all-new steel body and tubular steel chassis with an electric hub motor on each wheel. The bright orange prototype uses lead acid batteries, which will soon be replaced with Lithium-Ion cells for increased power and range.
