Have you ever seen a car that forces you to stop what you’re doing just to stare at it? As your eyes scan every panel, the CPU that powers your brain heats up, producing steam that billows out of your ears because it just can’t compute what’s going on. If you haven’t seen a car like this, I have good news for you today!
Earlier today, we published the story about a car with a fitting name: The Beast. The theme of this vehicle is clearly “more of everything” because aside from the 27-liter Rolls-Royce Meteor V12 under the hood, it has just more and more car. There are eight headlights, all sorts of scoops and vents, and check out your seating position here.
How many cars have their front doors just in front of the rear axle? It doesn’t end there, with the whole shooting break portion continuing into a huge overhang. I have some additional information about this daft creation. That tank engine is pumping out 950 HP and 760 lb-ft torque. The stated weight is 4,960 pounds and sadly I haven’t been able to find any dimensions, but the thing is so long that you could hold a short take-off and landing competition on the hood. It’s so long that I’m pretty sure the headlights are in a different postal code than the driver seat.
The incredible thing is that it’s coming up for sale, so you could own it! Unless, like our readers, you can’t pick your mouth off of the floor at the sight of it. Man With A Reliable Jeep has left me laughing for most of the day with this COTD-winning line:
“You think you hate it now, but just wait until you drive it.”
In fact, a lot of you went straight to comparing the Beast to the Wagon Queen Family Truckster. So, it’s time to dust off this classic scene from a classic movie:
Honorable mentions for today include asmallcat, who only increased my rate of gigglage with:
An incredibly impressive feat of engineering, but this is one of the ugliest vehicles I’ve ever seen.

The Family Yuckster
Finally, 98Z28 drove me to crying while laughing with:
I would drive it even through it gets feet per gas station.
“Next station in 10 miles”
“Hope we make it”
Once again, you awesome people prove that our comment sections are a ball to read. Thank you for giving us all a laugh today and have a great evening!
Now that you mention the length and the MPG it seems this is the perfect car for a dual tank setup: One in front and one in back. That way when you coast in on fumes at least the front tank will reach the pump. Or if you are going somewhere and run out of gas, the back tank will still be departing and you can fill up before you finish leaving.
I get a huge Ace and Gary’s car vibe from this thing. I’m not saying it’s bad, just saying I would have to cosplay anytime I went for a drive.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
“How many cars have their front doors just in front of the rear axle?”
Well, first to mind is the Corvette C3, but probably all of the Corvettes, really. Long nose, seats just ahead of the drive axle.
My back is basically resting on top of the rear wheels in the Viper.
I can touch the rear tires without stretching from the drivers seat of my Jeep.
A bit like Tommy Ivo’s Wagon Master.
This thing is even worse than Borat’s lime green mankini.
I’m glad such a fantastic abomination could bring a little laughter to offset it’s visual impact. 10 miles per gas station does seem a little optimistic, though. We need someone with the math skills to give us a ballpark of what to really expect.
Why do you think I was asking how big the gas tank was?
You know, besides figuring out if it could be Cannonballed.
Only if Cletus Snow was driving a fuel tanker truck instead of hauling Coors or an e
elephant and you had a fuel line running from the tanker to The Beast.
*It works as part of the Burt Reynolds Cinematic Universe since everything has to be part of a cinematic universe these days.
I just assumed it was gallons per mile!
Sure wish I had FU money. I’d love to buy the Beast and take it to a drag strip.
And then an autocross.
It would set a new autocross record! How many cars can start, u-turn, return to start, and hit every cone in the course?
