Thumbs up World's lowest roadworthy car measures 18 inches!

It may look like a toy, but this miniature car has as much right to be on the road as any other vehicle.

Measuring just 45.2cm or 17.79 inches in height, Mirai -- 'future' in Japanese -- has just entered the Guinness World Records Book 2013 for being the lowest roadworthy car.

Mirai was created by students and teachers of The Automobile Engineering Course of Okayama Sanyo High School in Asakuchi, Japan, the Daily Mail reported.

Looks real nice. Just like a racing car. In India though, there would be a great danger of getting spit upon from unsuspecting people above in 'normal' cars.

The car reminds me of the Speed Racer flick, the alloys on the car are just marvelous.
