Cars fun facts:

Cars come in so many shapes and sizes.  There are a lot of unique cars out there.  Here are some of my favorites:

  • Aquada Sports Amphibian – This convertible car is amphibious, it can drive on land at up 100 miles per hour and it can jet through the water at about 30 miles per hour. 
  • SSC Ultimate Aero – This is the fastest car in the world with a twin-turbo V8 engine and 1183 horsepower.  It goes from 0 to 60 in 2.7 seconds and can reach speeds of 257 mph according to the Guinness Book of World Records.   This speedy car isn"t cheap though.  It costs $654,400.
  • TRAX STI (Snow Car) – This Subaru WRX STI was built with snow tracks instead of tires so that it could drive around the Rocky Mountains.  Check out a cool video of it here.
  • Bigfoot – This was the original monster truck built in 1979 from a Ford truck.  Monster Trucks are built with very powerful engines and tires that are over 10 feet tall.  They often compete in rallies and demolition derbies.  Watch Bigfoots" friend, Gravedigger, at a Monster Truck Rally.
  • Bugatti Royale Coupe – A very rare car, since only six have ever been produced, that sold for $8,700,000 in 1987.
  • Peel P50 – This British automobile is the world"s smallest production car weighing only 130 pounds.  I guess you wouldn"t ever need to call a tow truck.
  • Nissan Pivo 2 – This futuristic Japanese concept car is completely electric-powered and it includes small robot!  Check out some other futuristic cars at the Tokyo Car Show.
  • Moon Rover – This car is out of this world. The NASA Moon Rover was the first vehicle to drive on the moon.
  • Smart Car – A tiny, eco-friendly and actually very safe car.
  • Kia Sorento – Ok this car may not be that exciting, but we love the Kia commercial.  It doesn"t get much better than a robot doing the robot dance.
