Weird and Wonderful Cars and a Whole Lot More


Well, I had originally planned to write about a cool set of posts I found on Dark Roasted Blend about weird and wacky cars. But as I started looking at their blog, I found myself reading more and more posts of theirs and being totally amazed and amused.

So while this post is mainly about the amazing cars they have written about, it is also a huge recommendation to go surf round on their blog. But only if you have plenty of time! And don’t forget to bookmark it because you’ll want to go back again and again.

So without further ado, here are some of the wild and wonderful cars and similar forms of transportation that I found on their site.

This is the picture that I originally viewed that led me to their blog. How could you not go look to see where it came from.

And if you’ve read my prior posts, you will know how much I love the new fortwo Smart car. Check this smart car out!

This is from their World’s Smallest Cars. It is a 1954 Mivalino small car (truly rare find) – Italian Mi-Val motorcycle company’s own version of the Messerschmitt KR-175:

Smallest ever car to go into mass production was the fascinating “Peel” P50 car (you could almost carry it as a suitcase) – more info here.

Despite having only one light (of any kind) and 5-inch wheels, the car was nevertheless deemed street legal.

From their Future Tech Review, the Moovie concept car built by Peugeot has a length of just 2,3 metres (7.6 ft) and width and height of 1,5 metres (4.9 ft). Access is created by two large sliding doors placed in the centre of the hub-less side-wheels.:

Too fancy for you? Try these:


Not really cars, but mechanized mobility suits “i-foot” and “i-unit”. The units can climb the stairs and are part of “The Wonders of Living and Moving Freely” and “The New Relationship Between People and Vehicles” exhibits.

These are just a very small preview of the cool cars and transportation (and related) things they have written about.

And then when you’ve spent hours looking through these, check out another of their categories, like Architecture or just plain Weird and start all over again!
