What we'll all be driving in 2020 - the Pyramid Car

21 June 2009

When are boffins going to realise that we don't want duel-temperature taps or automaton vacuum cleaners; the future is about jet packs, damn all your eyes to hell. We may accept futuristic cars but only if they fly, or hover at the very least. We don't don't to save money or the environment, we don't want vehicles powered by renewable energy sources - because time and again you build ludicrous contraptions like this jalopy:

Sweet muscular Christ almighty, the pyramid car is bobbins for sure, but inventor Greg Zanis is having none of it:

We plan on making a real car that can go over 300 mph with a aluminium frame and 4 wheel drive. We will sell this car for 12k to 20K. The car will last for 1,000,000 miles and will have more power then most all gas cars out there.

Course it will Greg, because there's a massive market for cars that simultaneously fail to meet the needs of most car buyers in having just one seat, and make the driver look like a prize dick. Still, if you're tempted you've only four days to get your bids in on eBay to buy the prototype. If you share Greg's vision of the future, you can read about about his project here.

    LOOOOL! "Prize dick" that made me crack up big time. It's soo true, I like the sound of a V8 revving and destroying the planet. It's just so worth it ;)

    Lol @ the marvellous freudian slip on their website - "The garage will have a wind turbine to turn wind and sunbeams into usable electricity that will charge the batteries insane the tower."

    I think he should take it to Vegas and open the world's smallest casino. I also love how the guy filming him (on a bike or just running) accidentally overtakes a triangular tit potentially capable of topping 200 mph.

    What the fuck, is the point on a pyramid shaped car?

    @-> Insert Witty Name Here - It's the bit right at the top

    Ah yes Andy, I see what you 'wittily' did there, however, if we're going to be pedantic, the 'point' could also encompase the other 4 points along the lower perimeter of the the pyramid, it all depends on the particular elevation. To reitterate, What the fu_k... (longish pause for poiniency) is the point of a pyramid car?
  • shit c.
    that guy needs to spend money on hookers instead of that setaming dog turd.

    [...] what does the future of transport look like? An air-powered motorcycle? A solar-powered pyramid car? A jetpack powered by strapping two fans on your back? No, it’s a bicycle. And a motorcycle. [...]
