This is a beautiful Messerschmitt KR-200. It had a 191cc Fichtel & Sachs 2-stroke engine, which reached a top speed of 100 km/h. It also had a nice interior, compared to some other microcars.

This is the Peel P50, it is known as the smallest production car ever built. It is powered by a 49cc Zweirad-Union 2-stroke engine. It's top speed is 75 km/h. This tiny car had no reverse gear, so you had to lift it up from the back to make it reverse. It wasn't a problem though, it only weighed 130 lbs.

The Grataloup Is Probably the rarest car on the planet. There was one produced and there is one surviving. This microcar has a 247 cc engine which makes it much faster than the Mopetta. By the way most of the pictures on this blog are from the Bruce Weiner Microcar Museum site.
