I dunno if any of you have heard of the Peel P50, but it's known as the world's smallest car. It weighs less than some people do.
I first saw it on Top Gear, where Jeremy Clarkson jammed his 6'5" butt in it, drove it into some elevator in England, and picked up one end of it, dragging it into an office. The car has a handle for that on the back because the whole thing weighs about as much as a Beetle engine.

A company is remaking them. The gas versions take Honda Cub-style engines, like Lifan clones. They are about as fast as our things.

That one costs like 10,000 pounds and weighs about 230.

I still can't stop laughing, but I'd totally drive it! :LOL:


Edit: next to a BMW Isetta, which now looks huge

I have ridden in an Isetta, when we lived in Spain our neighbors had one. A few years ago I found 2 Isettas in a vacant lot in New Mexico, never could find out who the owner was.

The Isetta's front door always scared me LOL. I've read they get stuck easy!

Most the cars I've owned have been pretty small. Also a big fan of tiny houses.
