Of the ten Mantide’s that have been made, this one that was spotted in Dubai is car no. 2 which was purchased by a Dubai resident back in December.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy.

Oh yeah, It looks like a 3d design car. Is it my eye or the camera has an error.
