F1 bloke presumably knows what he's doing by designing very tiny motor car
Congestion is something that bothers drivers. People stare at other people presuming that their journey isn't nearly as important as their own, leaving everyone sat swearing under their breath while some shock-jock repeatedly shouts the word 'gay' over pop-records.
Well, imagine a world where the cars you drive are so very small that you can drive two of them side-by-side in the same lane, allowing you to get cramp while you hate everyone else.
Not only that, but the car you drive will be made of glass fibre, recycled plastic bottles and hollow steel tubes which means that, should you crash your tiny vehicle, you can fully expect your legs to join your innards in some horrible engine and bone based pâté.
This car seats three, weighs just 575kg, has a top speed of almost 100mph and is expected to cost about £6,000 ($9,000).
The crackpot behind this is Professor Gordon Murray, who during the '70s and '80s designed Formula 1 racing cars. He designed the car that saw Ayrton Senna winning his first championship. Ayrton Senna is dead by the way.
Anyway, Prof Murray has designed a tiny death-trap called the T.25. Not only is it likely to blow away in the wind, but it doesn't have any doors. The whole cabin tilts forward like those daft old bubble cars. He's not stopping at this little three seater either.
"A five-seater, an eight-seater, a bus, or a two-seater," Prof Murray says, insisting anything is possible. "We are very flexible."
Sadly, the bones in your body are not. If you want to see images of the car and reporting on it that isn't glib and dismissive like this, then visit the BBC. We'll still be sneering when you get back.
