My interest in cars is not enormous. I tend to think that they’ll probably bugger the planet/humanity/environment. However, they are extremely useful. I presently own a Fiat 500 which is a sort of modernised retro car which was stylish a couple of years ago but is now ubiquitous.
However, if I ever manage to store up enough money (£18,000) I would very much like a Honda CR-Z. Why? Well if you’re going to drive a car it may as well be a good looking one. Now I’m sure (and I’ve mentioned this before) that we were promised amazing cityscape and flying pollution free cars in a global utopia, so I’d like a car that, whilst not being pollution free, at least looks a little like a spaceship and the CR-Z definitely looks like some sort of little sub-orbital shuttlecraft.
Now driving a spaceship on ordinary roads is no good if the inside looks like a car, fortunately Honda have that covered too…
The best bit is that this isn’t a concept car, its a real one that can be purchased right now, but I make no warranty as to whether it can actually go into space. I highly recommend that use some simple safety measures before trying, hell – at least take some oxygen with you just in case.
