It looks like a circus trick, but this tiny set of wheels could be the world's smallest roadworthy car. The mini motor, only 39 inches high and 26 inches wide, started life as a Postman Pat children's ride. But car fanatic Perry Watkins has transformed it into the most compact, if not most comfortable, car in the country.
Inventor, Perry, 47, reinforced the fibreglass shell with a steel frame and mounted it on a mini quad bike. He added mirrors, windscreen wipers, lights, mock racing exhaust pipes and go-faster flames. Now Perry hopes the nippy 150cc engine will race him to a place in the record books.
The vehicle is perfectly legal. It is taxed as a quad bike so Perry can drive it on public roads.
