Perry Watkins, a sales director and car fanatic, has built the smallest car in the world. The 47-year-old from Wingrave in Buckinghamshire has built a car that stands at just 39 inches tall and 26 inches wide. Surprisingly Perry can drive the vehicle despite being six foot tall.
Mr Watkins has constructed the world’s smallest car from a Postman Pat children’s ride. After obviously removing Pat and Jess, Perry reinforced the fibreglass shell with a steel frame and mounted it on the body of a mini quad bike. He then added a 150cc engine, lights, indicators, windscreen wipers and washers, making it completely road legal.
The car which has been christened ‘Wind Up’ is now on the road and insured with Adrian Flux as a modified quad. If you also have something weird and wonderful try Adrian Flux who will insure pretty much anything that is road legal.
The washing machine sized car is not Perry’s only creation. He also holds the record for the world’s lowest street-legal car with the ‘Flatmobile‘, a jet powered replica of the Batmobile that is 19 inches tall.
