Adult-Sized Toy Brings A Childhood Relic To The Road [Video]
This toy car can reach 100km/h in a tidy 17 seconds.
Growing up doesn't mean saying good-bye to your favorite toys, nor does it limit you from reliving your cherished childhood memories. British mechanic John Bitmead proved to us that you can be a kid at heart and still enjoy some grown-up fun. On a whim, he and a few of his friends built a functional, adult-sized replica of a Little Tikes car, a classic toy powered by children's feet.
Bitmead acquired a Daewoo Matiz and used it as the framework for the car. Clocking in about 1,000 hours, the team spent most of their time doing bodywork and making mechanical improvements.
