In a Top Gear show, Jeremy Clarkson driven the smallest production car in the world, the Peel P50 from 1962.
The Peel P50 was a three-wheeled microcar manufactured in 1963 and 1964 by the Manx Peel Engineering Company, retailing for Â£199 when new. It was designed as a town car and was advertised as capable of seating “one adult and a shopping bag”.
The P50 used a 49 cc DKW engine which gave it a top speed of approximately 61 km/h (38 mph), and was equipped with a 3-speed manual transmission that had no reverse gear, although was capable of an impressive 100 mpg (imp) (2.8 L/100 km/83 mpg US).
I just love this small car! It seems that it is perfect to drive it at work, in a big city!
