Smallest Engine Car You've been In.
Well as the thread suggests whats the smallest engined car 4 wheels (not those crappy 3 wheel things around like in Mr Bean) that you've been in.
I reckon i have the record here, back in 1995 i Indonesia I went in a Honda Life with a 360cc 4 stroke engine, it was old but the car was in Mint condition a genuine 26k on the clock. Was a Gem, although pretty slow and very very cramped it gives you an appreciation of what they can do with a small engine. Gotta say though it sounds like a diesel under revs though. There was 4 of us in the car and pulled quite well.
I think we take power for granted here( I know i do) driving around in 4.0L, 5.0 and 5.6L. As long as these engines exist theres no need to go anything smaller.
