If a scooter is too small, dangerous and uncovered for your tastes but you'd still like to have as minimal an impact on your surroundings as possible, Peugeot has just the concept car for you. Called the BB1, the French automaker says of its Frankfurt Motor Show-bound machine, "Its mother is a scooter. Its father is a car." Right.

So, the unholy offspring of a mini two-wheeler and a city car would look something like a cartoon car that's straining to stop before smashing into a brick wall. Good to know. One thing is for certain: you won't mistake the Peugeot BB1 for anything else on the road. With its exaggerated forward-pitched stance, solar cell-covered glass bubble roof and protruding head and tail lamps, this is one concept that stands apart from the rest of the crowd.

Amazingly, Peugeot has found a way to cram four human beings inside the BB1, and those occupants gain access to the cabin via a pair of reverse-hinged doors with mini roll-down windows. Driving the diminutive machine would surely be an experience, and the controls are more akin to those from a motorcycle than a car. See for yourself in our gallery below, and stay tuned for more details as the doors in Frankfurt officially swing open in the morning.

The Beatles did LSD and changed popular music.

Peugeot did LSD and did...that.

You know, I'm going to go out there and say you might need to have some talent first if you want drugs to influence your work.

I don't drive, I fly.
First time EVER that I flinched when looking at a picture of a car.
Dear God...

old Saab 9-3 coup?
I kinda like it, in a only-a-mother-or-an-insane-person-could-like-this kinda way.

Then again, I love the Fiat Multipla.

Wow. Good job Peugeot. I am glad they are capitalizing on their success at Le Mans.
