Widely regarded as one of the most elegant cars ever produced, the Borgward Isabella was incredibly advanced for the 1950s. Based on the earlier Hansa model, it was offered as a saloon, estate or delivery van. In 1955, the stunning coupe model appeared, with gorgeous curves and glamorous chrome adornments. Borgwards were incredibly well-built and survival rates are good, with thriving owners clubs across the world. It had incredible noise insulation for its time, and while the engine lacked power, the car had a sporting feel thanks to excellent steering and predictable handling. The unusual 'Isabella' name came about when company boss Carl Borgward covered the badges of a prototype to disguise it from any prying eyes, using decals bearing the name of his wife! Production finished in 196 2 after over 200,000 examples had been built.
