Smallest car in the world award given

For many records, the Guinness World Records is the effective authority on the exact requirements for establishing them. The company provides adjudicators to events to determine the veracity of the record attempts. The list of records which the Guinness World Records covers is not fixed. Records may be added and also removed for various reasons. The public are invited to submit applications for records, which can be either the bettering of existing records or substantial achievements which could constitute a new record.  Well, the GWR has just offered the prize for the smallest car in the world.

Austin Coulson, a man from the U.S., is the guy who designed and manufactured the smallest car in the world. The smallest road car ever made is only 63.5 cm (25 in) tall, 65.41 cm (2 ft 1.75 in) wide and 126.47 cm (4 ft 1.75 in) long. We can actually call it a toy car if we compare it to the regular small vehicles. The “little one” is a tribute brought by the owner to his grandfather who served in World War II. Austin Coulson provided his small vehicle with a P51 Mustang theme. The car has enough room to host a full-sized person, but it is more comfortable for a child. The bottom of line is that you need a license to drive the small thing on a public road and since there is only one unit you have to wait in line to feel the thrill of driving it.
