Standing just 39 inches tall and 26 inches wide, the little red Postman Pat car is apparently well-known in Europe as a children’s toy. Oddly enough, it’s now known all over the globe as the World’s Smallest Street-Legal Car / Kereta paling kecil di jalan raya .
The ridiculously small vehicle owes its newfound fame to a 47 year-old man in the U.K. named Perry Watkins, who gutted the plaything, added a steel frame to the fiberglass shell and propped it all up with the chassis from a quad.
WORLDS SMALLEST CAR : KERETA PALING KECIL
Powered by a 150cc single-cylinder four-stroke engine hooked to the rear wheels, Watkins’ machine, the smallest car in the world, won’t be keeping up with traffic on the motorway, but its working headlamps, taillights, windshield wipers, horn and turn signals have enabled it to become fully street legal in Britain. The small-displacement engine reportedly returns 70 miles per gallon or 24.78 km/litre of fuel consumption and manages to push the diminutive flame-painted flyer to what is likely a white-knuckle top speed of 40 mph which is 64km/hour.
