See The Smallest Car Ever Made

It seems cars keep getting smaller, which makes sense with gas prices getting higher. Small cars like the Smart car, Fiat 500 and Mini Cooper are becoming more popular. It got me to thinking what was the smallest car ever produced?It was the Peel P50. It was originally manufactured on the Isle of Man in 1962. The Peel P50 was a three-wheeled microcar made by the Peel Engineering Company. It currently holds the record for the smallest automobile to go into production.

The car had no reverse gear, but a handle at the rear of the car allowed the lightweight car to be physically lifted when needed.

The car had one door, one windshield wiper and one headlight. The 1963 model listed for 199 British pounds, which is around $309 U.S. dollars. The car was 54 inches long and 41 inches wide, with an unladen weight of 130 pounds!

The original Peel P50 ended production in 1965. In 2010, production of a replica version was started by a new company, Peel Engineering Ltd. based in England. Externally the car looked similar to the original. The 2011 production of new version of the Peel P50 came in road legal gas and electric versions. The new version has a top speed of 37 mph and gets 100 miles per gallon.

Would you ever buy a car that small?
