Or is THIS the World's Most Ridiculous Car?

or is this the worlds most ridiculous car


And here it is: the love child of a BMW Z3 and a Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe. The fact that this Gorgon-on-wheels is trust fund-busting expensive is just icing on the pie-in-the-poseur's-face (a la Three Stooges). As for Autoblog's irony-free report on this monstrosity, someone needs to take Noah Joseph out and get him, well, you know. Drunk. High. Laid. Something. "The Pininfarina Hyperion was unveiled just this past weekend at Pebble Beach, and our man Drew was on hand to bring you the best shots of the one-off coachbuilt special from the show stand as it was unveiled and from the fairway where it was displayed in all its glory." I know, I know: Jay Leno's Tank Car– which he actually drove to Pebble Beach. But c'mon, there's nothing more ridiculous than looking ridiculous when you're trying SO hard to look suave.

    leno's got more money than good taste. or more ego than he really needs. or both.

    That thing looks like someone blew up a Z3 with a foot pump and drew on a RR grille. Ugh. I don't think I'd drive that if someone gave it to me.

    If this car was US built it would be hailed a masterpiece. Just because Johnny foreigner comes up with a radical idea that puts it way ahead of the US industry there is always an immediate reaction to condemn it. Jealousy is an awful handicap to bear!
