WTH is this? Toyota Sienna Spongebob spec

It seems Toyota have finally lost the plot and built a car that is a homage to Spongebob Squarepants. It has been revealed at the LA motor show and is essentially the 2015 Toyota Sienta with a Spongebob makeover. imagine if this was actually an optional bodykit for the car!

The interior is very ‘unda da seaa’ and there are parts of it that just don’t seem at all practical, the steering wheel for a start, it doesn’t leave a lot, if any, room for your legs. You also wont be able to see much out of the front window. The purpose of this monstrosity is to help create a buzz for the new SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, and it is what would happen if a toddler got a car on Pimp my Ride. Personally we think the Nissan Cube would have been better suited for the task, but hey, the Toyota Sienna has done a good job of it.

The boot has also been converted into a mini cinema/beach so storage space could be an issue, but these set backs haven’t deterred the van from en devouring on a cross country journey for promotion of the film which is in theatres from February 6. One more thing, there is a functioning bubble blowing ring on the roof, and it looks like it would blow some pretty big bubbles.

New Top Gear Live Ad

A little bit of banter here from the Top Gear boys to advertise their headline 2015 UK arena tour! The video shows Clarkson, May and Hammond debating over whether or not it would be a good idea for Jeremy to try and reach 60 miles an hour and come to a complete halt, in what looks like a second hand BMW M3 ┬ábefore getting a little too intimate with the audience. The debate mainly consists of Richard and James saying it isn’t possible while Jeremy has other ideas (of course). Obviously it is scripted, but fun never the less.

VW Golf R Esate

I’ve sold a fair few used VW Golf in Canterbury over the years, they always have been a customer favourite, so whenever a new variant or version comes out I like to have a little gander. We now have full details on the newest Golf carnation, the Golf R Estate which will be gunning for it’s main rival the Ford Focus ST. The Golf R estate will be all wheel drive and it is going to set the benchmark for Volkswagen as their flagship model.

Straight away the Golf R Estate has an edge over the Focus as it offers almost 50bhp more as it gives 296bhp whereas the Focus gives out 247bhp, and the fact that it is all wheel drive really does mean you get the most out of it.
