Good little runner....<br />
<br />
A tiny German bubble car that is less than 4ft long is expected to sell for big money.<br />
<br />
The rare Messerschmitt KR200 was built in 1959 after the famous German company had been banned from making planes for the Luftwaffe.<br />
<br />
The micro cars were cheap and easy to mass produce at a time of austerity after the Second World War. But by the 1970s they were seen as a figure of fun and many of them were discarded. <br />
<br />
Today they are highly collectable and the KR200, which has been fully restored by its owner John Sandford-Hart (PICTURED), is tipped to sell for £30,000.<br />
<br />
It will go under the hammer with auctioneers Charterhouse, of Sherborne, Dorset.
