28 Outrageously Funny Cars

From Retro Phone Cars to Anime Monster Autos

— February 26, 2015 — Autos
While there's a huge amount of focus put on making cars aerodynamic, safe and as aesthetically pleasing as possible, these examples of funny cars show that there's some fun to be had when it comes to automotive design. Rotary phones, hot dogs, boxing gloves and sneakers are just a few of the zany things that have inspired the forms of some of the most comical cars. Although the average person probably isn't prepared to drop some serious dough on a custom Nyan Cat-inspired Ferrari like Deadmau5, these cars are undoubtedly eye-catching and great for marketing stunts.

From vehicles that are ticklish to ones shaped to resemble cartoons like Pokémon and Spongebob, one brand that shows it knows how to have fun is Toyota.
