Many microcar designs came out of post WWII Europe - cheap transportation for a devastated, but rebuilding economy. A few designs, like the Fiat 500A, began before the war but saw production continue afterwards. 127" long, 50" wide and 54" high, 13 horsepower, a top speed of about 50 mph and roughly 40 mpg. The engine is tiny and almost on top of the front wheels giving enormous legroom. It was said seven foot tall drivers could be accomodated.
