Micro-Cars. The little ones big time
In the 1920s, European manufacturers began to offer small cars. The first small cars used engines and transmissions, but also brakes and wheels intended for motorcycles. After World War II, economic conditions led to renewed demand. The smallest cars played a major role in post-war German car manufacturing. Whether Isetta, Messerschmitt, Goggomobil, Heinkel, Borgward or Zündapp: all these microcars are part of the history of the economic miracle. The vehicles selected by curator Emmanuel Bacquet tell of the rapid development of technology as well as the joy of driving. Memories are awakened and again and again the question arises: "Do you remember?"
