But sensationalism apart, let's agree on a definition of car:
a car as we understand it:
There was a British car mass-produced in 1962, called the Peel P50.
It was 4 ft. 5 in. long, 3 ft. 3 in. wide and had just one light in the front of the car.
Like a motorbike, it had no reverse gear. To turn it around you could get out and physically point it the other way!
It was powered by a German DKW 49 cc two-stroke engine and could reach 61 km/h.
It was registered for road use in the UK.

Ah, the Peel P50...built at the height of the micro car craze, alongwith the BMW isetta, messerschmidt and heinkel trojan i think...if you look carefully you will see the trademark handle to lift the car and turnabout if u wanted to reverse...coincidentally this years Goodwood is showcasing microcars as the speciality...
