The futuristic £75,000 motor - Extra Terrestrial Vehicle aka the ETV - is based on the same platform as a modest, run-of-the-mill Chevrolet. It is powered by a 2-litre supercharged engine which sends 270bhp to the front wheels through a five-speed gearbox. It has a five-feet high windscreen and gullwing doors which open automatically via remote control.
And inside there are two cameras which make parking the awkwardly-shaped car a doddle.
Italian-born Michael Vetter, who runs The Car Factory in Florida, USA, 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.”
