Dude builds lowest street legal car

This guy built the lowest street legal car. Wonder if an undertray is even needed on a car like this. It almost looks like a sled.

Slick Car!

(It DOES look like the old Batmobile!)

That thing must have NO frontal area to it!
Must not have any roll-bar laws in the UK!?!?!?

Dig his stubby chrome steering wheel!

It's width to Center of gravity ratio is awsome, it must drive like its on rails. You could never drive that it N. America. A lifted truck would literally run you over if it hit you.
