Blue car on the left looks like a Subaru Impreza WRX, the other is a Peel P50 with Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson at the wheel.

Gottem both. The WRX is second generation I think...2007 or so? The Peel P50 is well, what it is, and on display at the Isle of Man's Manx Transport Museum.

BMW 700 from mid 1960's, I think. Odd looking, to my eye. However more conventional than its predecessor bubble car.
I think they were raced or hill climbed or similar. Somewhere in the back of my mind I recall something about Hans Stuck (1950's GP driver and father of Hans Joachim Stuck) driving one.

Yup, that's a '65 BMW 700 Luxus. Oh yes they were raced, rallied and hillclimbed extensively.
