you could buy a car for that

However, if you already have a car, that would make an excellent hood ornament.

Oh my god. I can't stop laughing at how ridiculous that thing looks.

This one actually looks kinda cool, not $40,000 cool, but still cool nonetheless.

Was it made of carbon and titanium?
Probably plastic, but I'm sure you can find some way to coat it in titanium. :V

Oh lord.
Japan never stops to amaze me.

Why did they make it out of these materials? Are you supposed to be able to ride the thing like a lightweight carbon or titanium bike?
