What you’re looking at here is possibly the world’s smallest street-legal car built by a UK man – Perry Watkins. Watkins has previously been in the record books three times for having the world’s lowest car – what he calls a ‘Flatmobile.’

His latest creation is based on a little Postman Pat toy-car that stands just 39 inches tall and 26 inches wide (imagine getting in-and-out of one of those). 47-year old Watkins took out all the unnecessary equipment and added a steel frame to the fiberglass shell.

Power comes from a 150cc single-cylinder engine mated to rear-wheel-drive system. Watkins says that the car returns a whopping 70 miles to the gallon and can travel at speeds of up to 40 mph.

Check out a video of Watkin’s car after the jump.

    It would seem that the UK has easier rules for what constitutes a road worthy vehicle.

    Here in the U.S., I could see this vehicle being loved by the Greens. It would be fun to watch the Greens complain that the Prius is to big to be on the same roads with this vehicle.

    Are pocket bikes street legal in the UK too? …Are power wheels street legal too? Seems like it would be easier to mount a power wheels body on a go cart and say its a car?
