It’s 19 inches tall, has a ground clearance of 2 inches and is powered by a gas turbine engine. Sounds like something that the military would’ve have concocted up in Area 51 doesn’t it? Well, it’s not. The FlatMobile is the brainchild of one Perry Watkins from England. The car started out as a 1963 Hillman Imp whereby Watkins ended up taking 30 inches of height out of the body. He then went back and dug up every memory he could about the Batman TV series that aired from 1966-1968 to begin construction on his little version of Batman’s new ride.

During the build process Watkins did hit a few snags. Like this one when his jet-turbine almost caused the entire car to go up in smoke. In the end Watkins ended up building what the Guinness Book World Records has recognized as the lowest car ever build.
