Pretty random post here

I was down the supermarket earlier and heard that old engine noise - (probably a diesel), sounds like a tank, brings to mind a VW Caravan :P but when I looked at what it was, I was shocked.

Probably one of the smallest cars I've ever seen on the road! The owner had a conversation with one of the car park attendants and I heard a 500cc engine :o thrown in. I only thought electric cars had that kind of power?

Anyone know what car this is?
