Geek Chariot: Mantide car offers future motoring in the present

The Mantide is the kind of car that every geek wishes he could own, but is secretly scared to drive because the car might, in fact, consume him. Looking more like a spacecraft than a car the Mantide was designed by Jason Castriota for Stile Bertone of Italy.

If you thought the cars in the recent live-action Speed Racer were cool you'll be happy to know that the Mantide not only mirrors the film's way out designs, but the car is equipped the kind of speed you'd expect from such an aerodynamically adventurous vehicle. But don't get too excited, the company only plans to make ten of the futuristic chariots, each selling for around 1,500,000 euros ($2 million dollars) each.
