Oh yes, that is just what I need to do my grocery shopping and other trips around the 'hood'.  At the weekend I can lend it to alan so that he will have a way to give his lovely wife a real thrill, in the absence of any other way  :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :victory: :victory:

@asathorny  :goodjob: :snigger: Asa  - I'll have you know that it's thrill enough to awake in the morning and find you are still breathing.  There is no way we could get in or out of that car it's far too low.

Pretty sure all you'd need to do Alan is lie on the road in front of the car (heads facing the car, face-up) and engaging the 'auto-load' feature...which involves the car moving forward slowly, gently gathering you and your good wife through the large scoops at the front and depositing you in the driver and passenger seats...

...getting out can be tricky though.

Does that work for sleeping policemen (AKA speed humps)?
Looking at side view, I suspect it will otherwise be beached if attempting to go over any lump or bump >24.5mm

Maybe there is a "off-road" raised suspension mode available at a modest extra cost.

Maybe a little team of people forge ahead of you on the day's planned route and leave ramps at speed humps, or suggest alternate routes to avoid them...

It really is an unusable totally impractical toy for the nouveau riche that have no taste and maybe their own dead flat private racetrack...
