What is the smallest car you’ve ever driven? I bet it’s a supermini or a city car of some sort, maybe a Volkswagen Up! or a Mini. But what if I told you those were positively lardy, basically podgy old things compared to our latest test car. Lying? Nah, it’s the Caterham 170.

This Caterham weighs less than a Grand Piano, it’s thinner than a 12-year-old is tall and has an engine capacity exactly the same as two cans of dandelion and burdock. So, it’s a bit weedy right?
Wrong, wrong, wrong, oh how wrong can you be. This might actually be the most fun car in the world, and certainly the happiest one we’ve yet to try. Tiny three-cylinder Suzuki engine, c450kg of mass, no power steering – these are the components for a lot of fun.
