Who says that car makers don’t listen to their customers? A reader at Jalopnik asked for help in producing a concept image for a car built to the specifications of his four year-old nephew, Eli – BMW responded with the ride we all secretly wish we owned.
As per Eli’s specs, it’s a BMW with 42-wheel drive powered by 19 Porsche engines cranking 459 bhp (319 kW) each. Controlling this behemoth takes three drivers, who can all steer simultaneously. There's also a huge toy trunk with its own air vent and plenty of interior room to play.
Eli’s uncle chipped in with suggestions that the engines be water-cooled turbocharged boxer 6's linked to a single transmission, and came up with the model name 4219ELI.
If BMW doesn’t put this on the market, we will definitely be disappointed.
