Lawn mowing used to be a joyless chore, often farmed out to a cash-strapped neighborhood kid. But all that has changed, and the lawnmower has taken on a new status as a toy for the uber-rich. The Husqvarna Panthera Leo concept falls into the latter category, as the newest must-have garden beast.

More than just for status, the Panther Leo meets all our modern eco-concerns. It is made from recycled materials, and also comes equipped with zero-emission technology. But you might still need the neighborhood kid to help you figure out the controls, which are managed via paddles on the steering wheel and an LCD display monitor.
