Nov 10 THAINDIAN NEWS) After bringing new meaning to the phrase “fast food” when he built a dining room set meant for racing down the road , Perry Watkins is releasing more of his work, this time the world’s smallest licensed car.

The tiny car, which is forty-one inches tall and fifty-one inches long, by twenty-six inches wide, has a top speed of only sixty miles an hour. His tiny “Wind Up” mini car even includes seat-belts for safety, and flames painted along the sides for added coolness.

Perry took the frame from a repainted children’s ride, and the chassis came from a Shanghai Shenke quad bike. The tires came from Monkey motorcycles.

British inventor and constructor Perry Watkins was known a few years ago for his ‘Flatmobile’ which was only nineteen inches tall and could get as fast as one hundred miles an hour. His newest creation will be shown at the car show in Essen Germany on November 27.
