Didn't they just ban marketing of fast food for children in Britain? So real cars instead of Happy Meal toys, sounds fair to me...:D j/k

OK ..but lets be fair here, none of us are the target market for this car.

Having said that, I would wonder if any of those who would desire this car would be old enough to have a drivers licscene.
