If your thoughts on the smallest car in the world happens to be the Peel P50, there's something smaller, although, not made to carry any passengers. The DENSO Micro-Car is a miniature version of Toyota's first passenger car, the 1936 Model AA sedan and it is 1/1000 of the original car size.



The micro-car comes with complete trimmings, although in a miniature size, it mimics the exact qualities of the real sized car. For comparison, the diameter of a strand of hair is about 80 micron measurements (one micron equals 0.001 mm). Here are a few more Micro-Car statistics:

Stainless steel bumper – 50 microns thin and 220 microns wide
Wheels – 500 microns in diameter
Number plate – 200 microns high and 400 microns wide
The tiny car is powered by a 0.67mm-sized magnetic-type working motor consisting of five different parts that include a magnet. When supplied with 3V 20 mA of alternating current through an 18-micron-thin copper wire, the engine can run at 600 rpm.

In 1996, they were able to make a moveable version of the car, although it was able to move a milimeter speed.

1996 Model Statistics:

Permanent magnet: SmCo
Teeth on sprocket: 16
Coil: 1000 T
Power: 100 VA
Frequency: 8-12 Hz
Vehicle Speed: 5-6 mm/sec
