World's smallest car unloaded by hand from Isle of Man train
Made on the Isle of Man in the 1960s, the P50 more closely resembles a Little Tikes Cozy Coupe (itself one of the top-selling 'cars' in America). The tiny one-door, three-wheeled vehicle measures less than four and a half feet and (with a 50cc engine) weighs just 130 pounds – easy enough, in other words, to load and unload it from a train car by hand, as these guys did during the recent Manx Heritage Transport Festival. No ramps, no cranes... just a few fellas.
