14 People in a Smart Car

I remember the good old days when a Volkswagen Beetle was the standard, but now it's official -- get 16 people in a Smart Car and you may break the world record.

Here's a shot of the world's smallest car, which is street approved and goes about 40 mph. At 52 inches long, not much back seat action is going to happen in this car.

This tiny car is officially known as the Peel 50 (about 50 were built) and has two front wheels and one in back.

Top Gear did a good job on the Peel.

The Peel is, by the way, illegally parked, even supposing that's a one-way street. The two yellow lines parallel to the curb mean "no waiting" (not just no parking), and the two stripes visible on the curb on the other side of the road are "no loading or unloading at any time". I'm a little surprised the Peel doesn't have a flag or blinking light or something to attract the attention of other drivers, otherwise I can see it getting crunched when it vanishes under the line of the hood of something big.
