A man was spotted cruising the streets of Chongqing on August 28 in a convertible which he made himself… by simply cutting the hood off a van.
According to a Tencent News report, the man wore a bright orange helmet as he zoomed past onlookers at speeds of up to 129 km/h in his topless van. He even removed one of the side doors in back to make it look more ‘authentic’.
Despite the driver’s obvious confidence in his own craftsmanship, however, traffic police said that these kinds of car modifications are illegal and he’ll likely have to keep it off the road.
The van convertible joins the likes of other (probably) prohibited vehicles including this mangled wooden chariot, a mahogany Lamborghini and the helicopter car.
