Smallest cars ever

Peel P50

Welcome to the smallest car ever sold: the Peel P50, made in the Isle of Man in the 1960s. Measuring just 1,372 mm long, 1,041 mm wide and 1,200 mm tall, it was an extreme featherweight, tipping the scales at a mere 60 kg. It was so small that the wooden crate it was originally delivered in doubled up as the 'garage'. It was 'powered' by a 50cc moped engine sited under the single seat.

Surprisingly, it's just been put back into production thanks to former Dragons' Den investor James Caan. But the 2011 price is anything but small: Rs 10 lakh plus tax.
