Question 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.

Hey,

Suzuki Mighty Boy with about 500cc. Smallest I've owned was the 1098cc Morris 1100. Surprisingly the Morrie could do well over the 110kay speed limit - try 140-150 but revving rather hard. As in about to blow up.

L8a,
Prud

Little Suzuki "Handi" or something.. 3 cylinders and about 500cc of relentless fury. You could park the thing on the footpath. In fact, we used to drive it around the footpath around our local park. Most fun!

850cc for basic Mini, something odd like 1132cc for Mini Cooper and 1200cc for Moke, which is why Moke engines are stuck in Cooper fakes. 850 was my first car.

Smallest I've been in was Austin 7 at ?747cc and Fiat ?Bambino which I think was around 600-650.

a Bambino would have a 500cc engine since they did call it Fiat 500 or Cinquecento.

the smallest-engined car i've been in would be dad's old local version of the 1960s Fiat Seicento (600) with a 750cc or 850cc engine. i can're remember anymore. that's the first car i actually drove.

That's probably it, and explains why the 600 was in my mind.
