Nobody’s going to mistake this soapbox for a super car, and rightfully so. It’s got no steering, no brakes, and anybody daring enough to ride this soapbox would be smart to wear as much safety gear on their bodies as humanly possible.

This work of art was designed and built by Philippe Stark, a noted French designer responsible for designing some pieces of work, including the Aprilia Moto 6.5 and the interior of the Virgin Galactic Spaceport. His latest masterpiece is this soapbox, which, we can imagine would be a hell of a ride so long as its not done on a steep slope. Then again, there’s a way of stopping the vehicle, but as this video shows, it involves having one leg out of the car and doing it the old fashioned way. Just remember to wear shoes that have great traction. And, oh, this racer is kind of a little celebrity in its own right; it’s going to appear on the cover of the latest issue of Intersection Magazine, which you might want to scoop up as soon as it hits newsstands.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
