Turning a Car around Inside a VanMay 14th, 2014
To demonstrate the capacious cargo space of its 2015 Transit vans, Ford drove the world’s smallest production car, the Peel P50, into its 487 cubic foot cargo area. While that in and of itself isn’t that impressive, what they did next was pretty nuts. They asked their driver to turn the car around inside the van. While it did take nearly two minutes, and numerous bump-and-grind three-point turns, the car did eventually make it all the way around.
You’d think with Ford’s advertising budget they could have afforded to license the actual Benny Hill theme song.
95Octane co-founder Kenny Hoeschen was quick to point out that they could have done donuts in there if they had picked this car instead.
