The Flatmobile … move over Batman!
I am totally sure that now, you will all agree with me – we live in a crazy world! Proof needed? Ok! Meet Flatmobile, a vehicle that was officially recognized by the Guiness World Records as the lowest street car. More than this, the Flatmobile is completely legal, so you won’t have any problems with the law when taking this beauty outside for a insane ride. Can you imagine that this car is only 19 inch / 48 cm tall?
