Caterham, Radical, Ariel... no other country has such a dizzying array of small-scale manufacturers producing tiny, fast cars. Far from being a dying breed, little Brits are on the up, with all-new lightweights popping up willy-nilly: which other nation could birth the brilliant, bonkers BAC Mono? Even Morgan - a company apparently trapped in the roaring Twenties - is experiencing a new lease of life: with the arrival of the 3Wheeler, the Malvern metalworkers made over 1,500 cars last year for the first time, an increase of nearly 70 per cent on production numbers a decade ago. Top hole!
