Latest contender for "World's Smallest Car" built from kiddy ride. Answered

The official "world's smallest car" is only 52.8 inches long, but a UK Maker has built one only 51 inches long.

Even better, the new car started life as one of those ride-on toys you see beside the tills in supermarkets - Postman Pat, if you're interested.

He built a quad-bike style chassis to carry the body-shell, gave it a new paint-job, and away he went!

Hahahahahaha, one of my friends always tries to fit into one of these when ever we're at the mall. It always seems like the difficult part is getting out.

Are you SURE this is the smallest? BC ferries have some pretty cool propane cars...

The question is, can it run in the BBC offices (HQ?) and can John Humphreys drive it? :)
While very dinky I'd hate to share the road in this with massive 4x4s

I'd drive it. Even in the US, I don't want something huge. Yes, I know I'd have to share the road with the 4x4's, but the thought is, "How far can one go on a gallon of gas?"
