Carmakers these days are using lightweight materials like carbon fiber and aluminum to reduce girth and increase fuel economy, but no one has tried to make a car out of expanding foam.
Until now, that is.
Yes, the material used to fill voids in buildings and make things float was one man’s ideal starting point for four-wheeled transportation. Well that, and the shell of a Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class.
The car is the product of a Lithuanian man, who apparently wasn’t satisfied by merely turning a bare shell into a working automobile with foam. Just look at those wheels.
It’s hard to tell if the car is actually drivable, and whether the foam will hold up at highway speeds. It’s probably quite buoyant, though.
