One of the cars we own is a 2010 Toyota Yaris which is about as low as you can go in the econobox scale. It’s a functional car that aside from its better-than-average mileage, isn’t going to be the most appealing to the opposite sex.
Not only that, it’s get-up-and-go is subpar and there isn’t much room in it for anything. But alas, it’s still bigger than one of those stupid Smart cars.
You definitely give up a lot when you sign the paperwork and make a commitment to drive a Yaris, most of which is your pride.
Which leads me to the Yaris I saw on the freeway this morning on my way to work. When I saw it, I couldn’t believe it. I tried to get a picture of it but being it was still dark and the screen on my phone was blinding in such conditions, I took one shot and just got one giant blur. Besides, I didn’t want to risk my life any more than I had to while behind the wheel of…a Yaris.
And no matter how I tried, my description would not do it justice.
Once I got to work, I decided to Google what I had seen and lo and behold, there was proof of its existence on the Intertubes.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Toyota Yaris Batmobile. (See more pictures here.)
I…I don’t even know where to go with this. But what I can tell you is the “HEROES FOR CHRIST” is now gone and so are the Bat-Chutes on the bumper. Because, you know, those Yarises (or is it Yarii?) are so fast that they need the assistance of parachutes when stopping from break-neck speeds.
Look, if you’re going to make your care a rolling homage to something then go nuts and make it worth your while. And for Christ’s sake, don’t do it to a Yaris.
Because driving one of these things sans decorations is embarrassing enough.
