Weird RV comes from the future, is available in the present

In the market for a futuristic and slightly bizarre motor home? Aren't we all? You'll be the envy of the trailer park when you pull up in this 500 horsepower, 40-foot long monstrosity, which features a fireplace, a pop-up sky lounge with fog machine, and paint that glows in the dark.

If the design looks vaguely familiar to you, that's because it's based on one of Luigi Colani's striking truck prototypes. Yes, they look strange, but apparently the design is aerodynamic enough to give a fuel efficiency boost of about 20% along with what I have to assume is a fairly tremendous view of the road.

As for the rest of the RV (called the eleMMent), it's packed full of the sort of luxury that makes people like me feel guilty and uncomfortable whenever we're exposed to it, including about 500 square feet of usable area, a master bedroom with a 40" flat-screen TV and attached spa bathroom, a living space with a couch and table that turns into a bar and lounge at the push of a button, and an "integrated vehicle wash system," 'cause you don't want to have to worry about your strange new ride ever looking dirty.

In the gallery below, check out renderings of all of these amenities, along with some concept shots of the pop-up sky lounge and the light-up paint job. While we don't have pics of the real thing (yet), you can actually order one of these, as long as you're rich enough to do it without having to ask how much it costs.
