A few of the world’s smallest cars that you’ll never believe exist

Cars, although they are not more than a combination of metals, act like a mirror to your personality and say a lot about you.

In terms of cars, we have a general thought that the bigger, the better but ever since BMW launched its retooled Mini Cooper in 2000, we have fallen in love with tiny cute cars. Cars like the Fiat 500, smart fortwo, and BMW i3 are not only cute but also convenient for city driving and parking. So, here we are to lead your journey about a few of the smallest cars to ever grace the streets. Let’s look into them –

Peel P50, the smallest one

This is basically a one-seater 130-pound vehicle with a size slightly bigger than a Barbie convertible. The Peel Engineering company originally manufactured only 47 microcars and amongst them 26 are still existing. One has been sold for 146k dollars in the year 2016.

Austin-Healey Sprite, a charming British option

This car has been proudly dubbed the Bugeye because of the headlights and in the late 1950s, this car came in micro convertible coupes to the masses. Its beauty will amaze you like no other but one common thing among British cars is that you’ll need to find a good repair shop for your car. One suggestion is that handle your Austin with a lot of patience to avoid any unexpected problems.

BMW Isetta 250, an egg-shaped car

After WWII when it became a need to go from one place to another without spending a lot of money, then it came in the market. With an egg-shaped body and a single door, it looks like your own private submarine. But you can’t roll down the windows so you may feel suffocated inside the car on hot summer days. And the top speed of this car is not more than 53 mph. 

Paul Vallée Chantecler, a car with Gyro starter

A French dude produced this three-wheeled roadster with a whopping 5 hp. The compact size, bench seat, tent-like top make it the only car that you would love to adore. There are only two of these limited edition cars left in the world. The Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles auctioned one of these in 2018. So, start wishing before you’ll be allowed to pay for one of them.
