Baby Racer: The Proton Savvy

Malaysian car brand, Proton will bring its new micromini Savvy model to the UK. The company's CEO says that, despite a no-so- microlow price of under 6000 British pounds (around $10,000), the Savvy rivals some of the world's best handling cars, calling it "My First Lotus." Also fairly microscopic is the Savvy's 1149cc 16-valve engine, which produces double-digit horsepower and torque (74/77), but can propel the tiny car from zero to 60 in around 12 seconds, to a maximum of 106mph. How small is it? It's so small, we once saw one sneak into the movies without paying. Now that's small.
