Driving the World's Smallest Car in an Office
The Peel P50 was a three-wheeled microcar manufactured in 1962 by the Manx Peel Engineering Company. It was designed as a town car and was advertised as capable of seating "one adult and a shopping bag". The car currently holds the record for the smallest-ever automobile to go into mass production, at just 134 cm (53 in) long and 99 cm (39 in) wide, with a weight of only 59 kg (132 lb). The vehicle's only door was on its left side, and equipment included a single windscreen wiper, and only one headlight.
The 6ft 5in (196cm) tall presenter Jeremy Clarkson can be seen shoehorning himself into the car and driving through central London to work and through hallways of the BBC's offices in this hilarious video clip.
