Bike with a side car, or car with a side bike?

While the end result looks rather like an unfortunate mashup in a mishap, it's still a headturner for its fiery red bodywork and odd coupling of car and bike.

We've heard of sidecars, but this just takes the cake, er, car for literally having a side car. While the end result looks rather like an unfortunate mashup in a mishap, it's still a headturner for its fiery red bodywork and odd coupling of car and bike. We're guessing the Snaefell project's creator, Francois Knorreck, took 10 long years putting this one-of-a-kind hybrid together simply because it had to be done in secret, away from eyes of the wife.

I know I'd be miffed if the significant other coughed up a good $21,000 tinkering with what resembles an illegal ride that can't part company since the two-wheeler appears to be integrated into the car. What's worse, from the pictures, the bike seems to obscure the left windows. As a bit of trivia, the Italian cobbled together bits of a Volkswagen GTI, Audi 80, and Citroen Xantia with a Laverda motorcycle.
