SAN PAULO, BRAZIL – In Brazil, the smallest car in the country may be the next big thing.
Introducing the Nanico, a car about half the size of a Smart Car.

Car maker Caio Strumiello was inspired by the heavy traffic in San Paulo to design something smaller. Given that the car can only reach speeds of to about 44 miles per hour, the car could be perfect for city driving,  and for finding a parking spot. There is one big drawback, it doesn’t have air conditoning.

Currently, the Nanico runs on gasoline and gets up to 80 miles per gallon.
That may be easy on the wallet, though you might have to spend the savings on a chiropractor.
