Quirky News | Orange UK
"A footwear manufacturer in China has made an electric car out of a giant shoe. It can carry two people up to 250 miles at speeds of up to 20mph on a single charge of the battery underneath the driver's seat. The leather 'bodywork' is made in the same way as a normal shoe but on a bigger scale, using the hide of five bulls. A Kang Shoe company spokesman said it took six months to design and build the car at a cost of around £4,000."
