Here’s a fun concept car you’ll probably never see in real life, but that’s how it goes in the auto industry. This car is a little different than normal concept cars, however – it’s a toy, albeit life-size:
This model was first presented at the 2012 Tokyo Toy Show, and the idea is to get kids interested in building, tinkering and driving cars. (Maybe this is because some kids are losing interest in getting drivers licenses and cars?)
They presented a new version of the car at the 2013 Tokyo Auto Show, although the vehicle remains a concept.
Originally, the Camatte was a simpler vehicle with 5 to 7 panels, and between 2012 and 2013 it gained 50 more – and became the Camatte 57. I’m not entirely sure what to think about this, although it’s definitely eye-catching and cute. You could buy an awful lot of bicycles for the cost of one Camatte, and bikes are every bit as customisable and a whole lot more easily repaired.
