Is this the smallest car in the world?

This really is a very small carFollowing a bit of an altercation on the M8 motorway last week, I had the joy of being issued with a courtesy car by my insurers.

I fully expected that I wouldn’t be getting temporary wheels of the standard I had been used to, but what transpired is just a bit beyond a joke. Well, clearly it is not beyond a joke since everyone is openly enjoying the fact I am having to drive the automotive equivalent of a roller-skate.

It’s a Chevrolet Matiz, and I reckon it has a 1200w engine. Yes, it has to be measured not in cc’s, but in watts, like you do for a hairdryer.

This is a picture of my seven year old standing beside it. No Photoshop manipulation was required here, it really is that small.

I suppose I’ll be able to say I’ve driven a Chevvy, even if you couldn’t by any stretch of the imagination call it a classic Chevvy.
