Meet the world's smallest production car
At a mere 54 inches long and just 41 inches wide, the
legendary Peel P50 currently holds the record for the smallest
automobile to go into production.
Originally manufactured in the 1960s on the Isle of Man, the
Peel P50 was the Brainchild of serial inventor and Peel
Engineering Company’s owner Cyril Cannell.
Externally this car was very similar to the original but with many major mechanical differences in the suspension, steering and drivetrain.
Every Peel P50 is hand built in Great Britain. Each one
individually constructed to their owner’s personal
requirements just as they did it back in the 1960s.
P50 is powered by a small single cylinder 49cc 2 stroke
engine that produces 4.2bhp @ 6,600rpm.
The speed is usually restricted from the factory at
45 km/h (28 mph) by a computerized system, but can be
increased at the buyer's request.
