Batman in His Bathtub Says It All

"The Slingshot starts at $19,999, which is a whole lot of crazy for not much money. Based on the initial orders, it turns out that a goodly number of Americans have 20 grand available to look like Batman in his bathtub every time they hit a Starbucks. Of course, novelty only gets you so far. Once the early adopters are sated and Slingshots become a semi-normal sight, continued sales momentum will depend on the machine itself.(For the rest of the review go:  It's actually pretty funny.)  Is it a car or a motorcycle?  Even Texas can't decide.

And it supports my own first impression of the thing.  Which was "Pretty ridiculous."  

This particular specimen turned up on my street today.  So of course I had to take pictures.  It's almost as good as a two-headed calf...  The price?  Twenty grand and up.
