You won't believe this extraterrestrial sports car is custom-made
What if you loved both fast cars and outer space? Would there be a way to combine both?
In this video, Mike from Sebastian, Florida showcases one of his unique projects: a car that is both ultra-fast and ultra-cool looking. It is after all inspired by a spaceship.
It all began when Mike had a family and found out that most sports cars did not have sufficient space in the back to accommodate his new family members. Then, he set out to build on that could.
He decided while building this model --Mike has been building cars for 14 years --to incorporate his love of outer space and make something truly futuristic. It took him 2500 hours to build this version.
The end result is an automatic extra-terrestrial vehicle (ETV) which has a 2.2L engine, 260 horsepower, is 15ft (5m) in length and looks like it came out of a science fiction film. It's also quite practical.
“It’s a whole different world when you’re in a vehicle like this, nobody can believe it’s a real car!" explained Mike.
How did Mike go about building his ETV? What materials did he use? What resources did he rely on? Watch the video to find out.
