Drive An Adult-Sized Toy Car That Can Reach Up To 70 mph
If you have an affection for the smiling Little Tykes "Cozy Coupe" red and yellow car, I found something for you!

Brothers, John and Geof Bitmead, created the "Toytown Coupe" in their mechanic shop, Attitude Autos. It's a motorized, road-legal, adult-sized version of the toy car.

According to a BBC report, the car can reach speeds of up to 70mph. You can buy one on ebay for ?21,500 (or around $33,000 USD).

According to the description, "We have covered over 5,000 miles in the past two years driving around shows and charity events in the UK and apart from it not being the fastest car on the planet has been the most incredible fun with people queuing up to take photos along dual carriageways and highways on every trip."

"We were hoping it would be out on a regular basis, create some revenue and recoup the money used to build it," he explained.

"But in real life it ended up going out four or five times in two years. So we thought we might as well sell it and if anyone's interested in buying it that will bring back some money for us."

The captivation around their "Big Tike" is down to the design being a "part of people's childhood and their children's childhood", Geof said.

"They're amazed to see the real thing on the road. I've seen people with tattoos all up their arms walking along the road just cheering at us.

"There was that kind of response to it. Everybody recognised it. It's part of our life. We see these things in people's front gardens, and now you can see it on the road."

The car sale does not mark the end of the Bitmeads' wacky schemes. They hope to put the money received towards creating an Addams Family-inspired "creepy" camper van.
