English term or phrase: smooch-ball
Si parla dell'Isetta - è urgente!!
The Munich-based manufacturer acquired the Isetta licence from Italian firm Iso, gave the “smooch-ball“ a new drive unit – from a BMW single-cylinder motorcycle – and re-trimmed its Italian robes, before bringing its new car onto the market around a year later.

Explanation:
Ciao Maurizio, "smooch-ball" è la traduzione del tedesco “Knutschkugel”, ovvero più o meno "nido d'amore". In Italia però l'Isetta era nota col soprannome di "Ovetto (volante)". A te la scelta!
