We Need This Caricatured ‘Rocket Bunny’ Ford Fiesta In Our Lives

This gloriously over-the-top imagining of a Hot Wheels Ford Fiesta, complete with huge rear wing and wheel arch extensions, has gone so far past 'ridiculous' that it's somehow really cool again

In a lot of ways this render of a heavily-modified Ford Fiesta is all wrong. There’s an over-abundance of rice, the colour scheme is a bit too ‘in-yer-face’ and we can all see how uncomfortable it’s going to be.

But… we love it. Maybe it’s partly the Hot Wheels association, but this Fiesta is just so excessive that it circles way past silly, smashes through ridiculous and comes back around to being a bit cool again.

Although it’s just the product of X-Tomi Design’s imagination, the fictional Fiesta is set up for the track, or Tarmac rally stage work. Nearly kissing the ground with its deep front skirt is good for aero, while the huge, fat tyres will cling to the asphalt for all they’re worth. The double-bladed rear wing is just awesome, too. It’s like we’re back in Need for Speed: Underground. We need someone to build it.
