Peel P.50

On Display

The only production car ever to have been made in the Isle of Man was this ultra light fibreglass single-seater.

The makers claimed, 'Parking problems solved, armchair seating, car comfort, saloon car protection, lively performance, powerful braking, easy starting, normal car controls, ample parcel space, etc.' In reality, it is impossible to fit even a shopping bag into it.

Lacking reverse gear, a grab handle at the rear facilitated this manoeuvre.
