      That’s what I was thinking! I had my daughter snap this pic as we drove by it on the freeway.

    Haha! That’s a REAL car! And yes, they do tip over! The UK show Top Gear did a show on them (and the car tipped over plenty! lol).

      Thanks for the heads up, Kate! I’ll have to go look for a video. :)

    Is this a joke or did it really happen?

    • http://www.mybargainbuddy.com Karen Hoxmeier

      This is a real car that my kids and I spotted on the freeway! I know, everyone was slowing down to see what the heck it was.

    Those things DO fall over all the time, especially going around corners.

    I can’t figure out why the car front end isn’t scraping on the pavement~!  I think I would take a double take if I was driving and saw that.
