A car designer bored with regular motors has built a futuristic car that is less Renault Clio and more like a vehicle featured in the Sci-fi film The Fifth Element.
The car has even been named The Extra Terrestrial Vehicle - ETV - to reflect its alien-like look.
ETV is based on the same platform as a modest, run-of-the-mill Chevrolet, but this is where the similarities end.
It resembles one of the flying cars that featured in blockbuster movie The Fifth Element, starring Bruce Willis.
Sadly, however, this car isn't capable of flight. It does, however, have a five-feet high windscreen and gullwing doors which open automatically via remote control.
And if you were worried about parallel parking, the two cameras will make such a task a doddle.
Italian-born Michael Vetter, who runs The Car Factory in Florida, designed and built the motor.
Kit Car Mike, as he is known, has made seven ETVs with one model on display at the London Motor Museum in Middlesex.
He said: "This ETV is built for the person that has had every kind of car and is still looking for something different.
"I have built more than 100 custom cars and this is the best of the best in terms of looks and reliability."
Those interested in buying the space buggy will be set back a cool £75,000 - the same price as a Porsche 911.
ETV is powered by a 2-litre supercharged engine which sends 270bhp to the front wheels through a five-speed gearbox.
Vetter said he did not foresee the response he would get when driving around the car that looks part alien hovercraft, part bug.
"I was unprepared for the initial response I would get while driving it but I would say I get five times as many people photographing it than if I was in a supercar.
"If you think a Bugatti Veyron gets a lot of attention, be prepared for something of a different flavour as this brings in so much positive energy."
