Small Wonder : The Peel Car!


It looks as if someone has unbolted it from a merry-go-round and plonked it down in some traffic.
Postman Pat’s van could probably outrun it and the cabin is so cramped that Noddy would struggle to bring any shopping back from Toytown.
Ah, but there’s nothing quite like a Peel Car for driving to the office.

Ladies and Gentlemen! Presenting you, the world’s smallest production car!
In the photos below you can see how Paul Harris grabs a coffee in his office, squeezes into a lift (a car in a lift!!!) drive in a narrow street, weave through heavy traffic, and park in an impossibly small space!

You can opt for the petrol version or go for the eco friendly (nature ke rakshak 😉 ) version. What’s more, this little beauty has more pulling power than a Ferrari. Try taking one on the road ans you will see how eyes will be following you! Sadly, this small wonder is not allowed on motorways yet.

The car is the born-again version of a uniquely British classic that was made on the Isle of Man between 1962 and 1965. Only 50 were ever produced. Now it is being remanufactured as the P50 Peel Car by two enthusiasts who recently won backing from Dragons’ Den investor James Caan. They are planning a limited edition run before deciding whether to produce a viable, everyday micro-car that would be hand-built in Britain.

Price : Only £15,000 each (hehe 😀 )

Who will buy it dear?

‘We sold one to a lawyer who travels by private jet to London from the North of England,’ 29-year-old company co-owner Faizal Khan said.
‘He parks the jet, gets out the P50 and drives to work. And women seem to like it because although it’s classed as a scooter it’s got a roof, you don’t get your hair messed up, and you can park it virtually anywhere.’

Well! For us lesser mortals, who do not own small little jet planes,  let us just admire this small wonder here at TIF 😀
