Zündapp Janus in CARS 2 -on the turntable

Sunday, June 5th, 2011

Pixar put all the characters in CARS 2 on a turntable so you can see them from all sides.
This is the 1958 Zündapp Janus that appears as “Professor Z”
The Janus is sort of like the BMW Isetta, but it has a door that opens at the front AND the back.
It looks the same coming or going. Hence the name of the Roman God: JANUS
The green/green color scheme is actually a period-correct one and would be found on an original car.

 

Tip of the hat to Mark Hatten for finding this!

This seller actually has PROOF that this is a BMW Isetta, they sent the ID number to BMW and got confirmation that it is actually a 1957 BMW Isetta.

What really makes this car stand out is the configuration of the rear wheels and the type of engine that powers it. As previously mentioned in the eBay listing for this car that you can still see HERE, this car used to be a very very rare 1954 model.  The seller verified this because they “knew” someone else in the US that also had a 1954 model Isetta.  Also- “someone” from the BMW Museum in Munich stopped by to look at the car and confirmed that they did indeed have a rare beast. Never mind that the body was from 1957, this car had the PROTOTYPE ENGINE installed! Yes, prototype.  And that engine was a 2 cylinder engine. Additional photos sent by the seller show that the engine is stamped OMC.

Yes, that’s right, BMW had the Outboard Marine Corporation of Waukegan IL put a 2 cylinder engine in their early BMW Isettas.  It must be true because the seller said so!  This car is also advertised as completely restored.  You will not find a finer example of a BMW Isetta with a rare rare rare OMC outboard motor installed.

If that is what you are looking for, this is the car for you.

This engine is so powerful, they had to loosen one of the sprockets and remove the chain while sits because you never know when it will just take off and tear up the road.

These engine photos show the incredible attention to detail that was put into the restoration of this historic vehicle.

This is truely an amazing story.

Please don’t bother this seller with any questions, they only have time for serious buyers.
