Peel P50 - The World's Smallest Car

Ever wondered what the Worlds smallest road legal car is? Well probably not but it does make quite interesting reading.

The Peel P50, is recognised by the Guinness book of records as the Worlds smallest road legal car. It was advertised as being capable of seating, "one adult and a shopping bag," and was designed in the Isle of White.

Manufactured between 1962 and 1965, it cost just £199 to buy new.

Increadbly it was just 52 inches long, 41 inches wide and weighed in at 60kg. It had just one door and one headlight.

Check out the images of the tiny automobile below:
