Gerard C should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
The P50 is now famous in France, thanks to Jeremy Clarkson! Generally, all those tiny cars are nicknamed suppository for autobus!

The idea of building a P50 for local shopping trips quite appeals (in an absurd way) but with so little space evident inside driver cubicle an "estate" version might be required.

I would also be slightly concerned about its abilities over speed humps.

Could be amusing though. Maybe not so amusing at the price for the kit.

Sorry Mike, but I've always found microcars an interesting subject. maybe it's something to do with when I was born (1956) then growing up with a strong interest in cars. They were certainly quirky & different!

Oh, I totally agree, but perhaps not on this thread!

BTW it’s all my fault for posting the newspaper pic in the first place!

Point taken Mike, I'd forgotten this wasn't the tea break...
Anyway, it's nearly a week since we left, has anyone noticed any difference?
(How's that for getting the thread back on track?)

Not only that but the P50 has "Sports" and "GT" versions with "racing disk brakes".

AND it's one of not very many genuine British car manufacturers.

And they have a woke EV version or two!

Do they know that the car is well known in France. Have they worked out the potential for an export market? (Is it mainly because of the colour that France knows about it?)

Should they be considering record attempts at the 'Ring?

Etc.

Mike, we are now in the 'Sunny Uplands' so maybe it is time to close this thread and start something more appropriate;

Maybe?
