The Smallest Car in the World-Peel P50
Introducing the legendary Peel P50, the World’s Smallest Production Car! At a mere 54 inches long and just 41 inches wide it has held the Guinness Book of World Records’ title for over 50 years! Having only one headlight, door and powered by a diminutive power plant it’s design stands as a symbol of automotive minimalism!
Originally manufactured in the 1960s on the Isle of Man. The Peel P50 was the Brainchild of serial inventor and Peel Engineering Company’s owner Cyril Cannell. He envisioned an ultra compact, exceptionally small commuter car capable travelling at 40 mph while comfortably seating one adult carrying a briefcase.
Production ceased in 1964 with only fifty Peel P50s ever been produced. Of these originals only twenty seven are known to be still in existence making the Peel P50 one of the rarest automobiles in the World! An ultra rare 1964 Peel P50 recently went up for auction, it fetched over $120,000!
Every new Peel P50 is lovingly hand built in Great Britain. Each one individually constructed to their owner’s personal requirements just as they did it back in the 1960s. Our dedicated and talented production team takes the utmost care to marry modern engineering with authentic design and construction.
The original Peel P50 was ahead of it’s time, designed with a very innovative fibrglass monocoque chassis which made it very light yet incredibly strong and tough. Our Peels are constructed by our specialist fiberglass team who have over 40 years of experience in racing car fiber reinforced composites.
Each and every Peel P50 has a super quick rack and pinion steering, an automatic gearbox, fully independent suspension, all wheel braking, is mid engine rear wheel drive and perfect 50/50 weight distribution. They come equipped as standard with an electric windscreen wiper, windscreen washer and a leather seat.
