Who would design a car like this?
First there’s the sheer size. There’s just no way, at 73 feet long, it’s ever going to fit into a normal person’s garage. And at nearly 20 feet tall, it may not even go under many bridges on today’s highways.
And how ridiculous is this…it is nearly as wide as it is long (69 feet at its widest point)! Can you imagine driving down the Interstate and seeing a vehicle 69 feet wide? You’d have to have a sign hanging on the back that said “Wiiiiiiiiide Load.”
Yet with all that size, it can only carry twelve passengers. Granted, many cars cannot carry twelve passengers. But if you need to carry that many people, just get a van. Some of those are big enough to carry 15 people.
And the cost? Well, that’s the worst part. You could buy 100 traditional luxury automobiles for the price of just one of these monstrosities. There is absolutely no good reason to pay all that money when many other less expensive and more practical cars are available.
That is, unless you want to travel 30,000 feet above the highway at speeds exceeding 500 miles per hour.
