Retro Car

Okay, I'm not a big car enthusiast, but this was just too cool not to share.

In Nissan's new model - Pivo - the cabin rotates 360 degrees. This means that if you drove this car and had to drive in reverse, instead of turning your head and twisting your body, you could just turn the cabin.

Other features:
- 3 seats
- electric
- cool dashboards gadgets and other new features.

That's very cool.

I'm not a big car enthusiast either, I'm almost 30 and still don't have a driver's license. maybe I'll get one when we stop pollut...

Opps, I nearly got all ranty then.

Very cool Car!

Get ranty, it's quite alright. There, there. :)

This car is electric so at least it's not polluting (I think, for sure not as much).

(I thought the sci-fi folks would like it)

My boys and I had a good laugh over this one! It looks like a wine barrel sitting on a go cart. Thanks for sharing. :)

Always at your service :)

Nope. No room for long-legged, awkward Greyhound.

I like the swivel option though.

I know, imagine you're about to parallel park so you just turn the whole cabin. That's so funny.

Does it come with that lady saying "Warning, this vehicle is about to turn three sixty degrees"...kinda like with those *huge* supermarket delivery trucks?

[Wonders if the car comes in the Bat mobile design].

haha! This looks like a mix between a barbie car and something you'd see on one of those anime shows. I love it!

I'd absolutely buy one! It's ust so freakin' cute!

melly said...

Eric, it probably beeps while the cabin turns :)

Erin, me too. I'd buy one. It is very cute.
