The Extra-Terrestrial Vehicle (ETV) looks like it could be straight out of a sci-fi movie. Designer, Mike Vetter, who runs The Car Factory and who also customizes cars, used a Chevy Aveo to create this futuristic automobile.
Mike Vetter stripped down the Chevy and added an all new interior and exterior as well as gull-wing doors.
Mike is currently selling the ETV on eBay for $86,000.
