Most of us will have either owned or been in contact with the Little Tykes 'Cozy Coupe' at some point in our childhood - millions have been sold, after all. But what if you made a working, adult-sized version? We've already seen a few Smart Cars - like the one below - painted up in the famous red and yellow paint scheme, but the guys behind the creation above took things much further.

With its open sides and high-mounted yellow roof, it really does look like its toy equivilant. It was built by Oxfordshire-based Attitude Autos over five months at a cost of £35,000, with a Daewoo Matiz used as a base car.

The 800cc three-pot engine and running gear were retained, while the whole car was shortened, and the front doors heavily modified into a new shape. The roof was fabricated out of steel, and the rear panel and seat unit are fibreglass creations. The front wings and bonnet are the only clue to what this car started out as.
