It will be difficult not to notice this cute yellow three-wheeler BMW Isetta 300 on the road.

One almost half the size of an average car was spotted making a turn along Middle Road

Class vehicle scheme

According to the Land Transport Authority (LTA) website, a classic vehicle has to be of at least 35 years from the date that it was originally registered.

The vehicle can only be used for 45 days per year (inclusive of weekends and public holidays).

The driver has to put up a valid Day Licence when the car is in use.

The classic car plate is red and yellow coloured with white lettering and a seal affixed by an LTA-Authorised Inspection Centre
