Jalopnik’s Jason Torchinsky was contacted by reader Ben with a special request to help his car-crazy, 4-year-old nephew Eli visualize his dream car.

Ben said that he really wanted to show Eli a “tangible expression of what his awesome imagination came up with” and believed that there were plenty of talented Jalopnik readers who could provide an “artist’s conception” of the vehicle for him to show the boy.
Eli really does have an incredibly imagination, the vehicle he dreamed up is a BMW with 42 wheels that is powered by 19 Porsche engines that each produce 459 horsepower. The car has 3 steering wheels, all of which can drive the car at the same time (boy I hope he gets along with his co-pilots)!

It would also come with a trunk full of toys and it can be played in.

Torchinsky shared the story complete with Eli’s impressive specs for this 42-wheeled mega vehicle and his own rendition of what it would look like and several readers have put together their own versions of the vehicle too.
