Stop crying, pick your chins up from the floor and wipe that little bit of vomit from the side of your mouth. This car exists, and you, yes you, can buy it for $1.1m (£680,000). Unleashed this week at an unsuspecting Los Angeles motor show crowd, the Youabian Puma is a huge, four-seater cabriolet that measures in at an excessive 6.15 metres long, 2.36 metres wide and 1.83 metres high. Under the hood lies a 7.0-litre V8 LS7 engine, which churns out 505bhp and 470lb ft torque. Power is transferred to the tarmac via a six-speed automatic gearbox. If you're wondering what happens when the heavens open, the Puma's huge folding hard top takes care of keeping the elements out. The Puma - designed by Dr K. Youabian - is claimed to hit 60mph in 5.9 seconds. It sits on 20-inch chrome wheels shod in 44-inch rubber and took its makers some five years to build. On top of the steep $1.1m price tag, prospective buyers will have to wait at least 18 months for their order to be made. Who's in?
