Astonishing pedal-powered Porsche replica

If you thought the pic above was a gold-colored Porsche, your eyes have deceived you. It's actually a bicycle with an intricately crafted replica body placed on top. Clad in mylar like a lunar lander, its ultralight body is shaped exactly like a Porsche GT3.

The amount of trouble this guy went to when he created this replica is downright astonishing. Think of all the money he's saving. Besides all the gasoline he won't have to buy, he built a $150,000 car out of tinfoil, balsa wood and a four-wheeled pedal pusher. Never mind that its 0-to-60 time might be in the minutes, rather than the seconds.
