The smallest car in the world?

The Pell P50 is officially the smallest car in the world and it holds a Guinness Record too. It was created in England in the Isle of Man by Cyril Canell and Heny Kissack. They both thought of designing a small car that could transport only one person. The car was launched in 1962 aiming to be the best car to go to the supermarket or driving in the city.

The Peel P50 measured only 1.34 meters long and 0.99 meters wide. It could reach 64 km/h with only 4.5 CV, 59 kg and 3 wheels! Another peculiarity was that it could only move forward not backwards so they installed a small handle at the back so the driver could use it to park the car or move it backwards.

This car was really unique but he didn’t collect much success so only 100 units were produced between 1962 and 1965, recently Peel produced another 50 units of a limited edition with different electric motor versions so if you like it you might be able to get one!

We don’t rent them but do have other cars on offer so if you need to rent a car in Spain or anywhere else in the world please check our latest offers on www.autoturistica.com.
