The Strangest Vehicles In The World

Normal vehicles are not for everyone. Thankfully, people take what was once a normal creation and turn it into a one of a kind set of wheels. Here is a collection of the world’s most unique vehicles, guaranteed to cause maximum rubbernecking. Enjoy.

#1. Ford truck

Let's start off with this Ford truck, a very unusual passenger vehicle, as, unlike other colective means of transportation, it was not concieved to circulate a road or a landing board. For years, it was used to transport passengers from the airplane to the airport in Z├╝rich, Switzerland. Nowadays, it is part of a collection at the Lucerne Museum of Transports.

#5. Mattrack Truck: the skiing car

Mattrack Truck: the skiing car
This is a standard truck where the wheels have been replaced by mattrack belts. The company -Mattrack- can apparently do this to any kind of 4×4 vehicle – from ATVs to 20 ton trucks. The short belts allow the Mattrack Truck to drive almost anywhere unless the snow gets to deep. If the snow gets to deep, longer belts are required. The short belts also make Mattrack Truck able to cross small creavasses, while larger creavasses require longer belts.

#6. World's Longest Limousine

#7. Batmobiles


I don’t know if you have seen the movie ‘Batmobile begins’ or not but I am pretty sure that you must have heard of the Batmobile. The movie makers used 8 different models of the Batmobiles with four of them having the exceptionally swift speeds. The Batmobiles were power-driven by 340 horsepower GM 350 V8’s getting the vehicle to 0-60 in just 5.3 seconds with a theoretical top speed of 220 miles per hour. Read more about Batman's Motorcycle

The Camera Van

#11. Jet Powered Beetle

Jet Powered Beetle

This monster is powered by two engines (original up front, jet in back) and is perfectly street legal since you’re only using the gasoline powered engine in normal driving conditions. But if you’re feeling adventurous, fire up the jet engine – which spins up to 26,000 rpm/13,000 rpm idle

#12. High Heel Shoe Car

High Heel Shoe Car

It would be safe to call it my dream machine. I’m not exactly sure if it’s a bike or a race-car (the drag-race variety) but certainly it is one cool set of wheels. The exterior is crafted to look like a sexy red pump that would make men melt. The interiors, done in all black, carry a hint of black suede or even velvet (not sure about this one either) on the seat cover.
