This is a small car with a lot of economical punch to it. It actually gets one hundred miles to the gallon. It is so compact you can fit it through a door and park it in your living room. It is 54 inches long by 41 inches wide. There are only two problems with it though.

It's gas tank only has one gallon in it, AND it does not have a reverse.

So I ask you, would you buy this car?

Please wait until after you've seen the video to post an answer. It is 9 minutes long.

I'll take one....I always liked small cars. Once I outran the cops in a Datsun 240z (my first car)
by driving thru the fence of a schoolyard....the cop car was too big to fit

NO.

It's jot practical at all and would be VERY unsafe on the road.

there are several up for grabs in England but the cost is preventative not to mention it has no reverse gear or taillights. , however if your really hard up to get one i know of at least one (will have to check) company that produces replacement parts for all assortments of bubble cars and they will sell you a new peel 50 for about 15,000$ which is completely insane.

personally though i love the messerschmits micro cars, tandem 2 seaters with a real style to them. look em up!

In a word, no.

Watch this first. It kinda changed my mind on small cars.

Not a chance. What can you do with such a thing? My car, like all of my other current possessions, has to "justify it's existence". That thing doesn't. Better off just using a bicycle, I would feel less claustrophobic. You can't carry tools or equipment in it. You can't make money with it at all. So, no. No thanks.

Is this a joke? Why would any one waist money developing this death trap. If your looking at it from a safety stand point it would seem a motorcycle is safer. If you get in a wreck in that thing your probably going to get smashed inside like a can of tuna.

The only thing that holds me back from saying yes...are the visions of firemen peeling me out of this flattened tuna can after I topped it out on the bypass.


Other than that? Its awesome.


ETA...I hereby swear that I did not steal "can of tuna" from the above poster...
Teach me to read all the replies next time.

I would drive it around in any empty car park or on someones estate.

There is no way you could even pay me to drive that thing on a road. Seems each one comes with a tracking device for death to follow you in. Would be about as safe as me hop scotching down a motorway..

Yes I would definetly cruise one of those!
I would own one, and drive it proud!
Maybe drop a more powerful street bike engine in it, upgrade the suspension and brakes.


The only thing I would be worried about was parking front ways twards a wall or something, You have to get out of the front, and their is no reverse....You'd have to holler for someone to give you a push back....lol.
