New smaller petrol-electric hybrid sees Lexus GS take on 2.0-litre turbodiesels in the executive sector
Think your Smart is the smallest car on the road? Not by a long chalk. The 2,690mm-long Smart Fortwo is a supersized limo compared with the world's smallest cars...
Welcome to the smallest car ever sold: the Peel P50, made in the Isle of Man in the 1960s. Measuring just 1,372mm long, 1,041mm wide and 1,200mm tall, it was an extreme featherweight, tipping the scales at a mere 60kg. 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: £12,500 plus tax.
