World's smallest car Peel P50 celebrated on Isle of Man

The Isle of Man is hosting a festival to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the world's smallest production car.

There are only about 30 original Peel micro cars in existence and about 12 are on the Isle of Man for the celebration.

The P50 and Trident models were first manufactured in the west of the Isle of Man in 1964 by Peel Engineering.

Neil Hanson, from Onchan, owns what is believed to be the only P50 that has never left the Isle of Man.

"These cars are so few and far between, I have immense pride in it," he said.
