The unique car, one of the most unusual cars in the world, was first introduced in 1998. A unique copy was built by Cummfy Banana. After more than 20 years, they decided to remember her online.
The main purpose of one of the strangest cars on the planet was to advertise a lawn mower developed by the Israeli firm Friendly Robotics. In order to promote its product, the company ordered a rounded car project from Cummfy Banana, which is a full-fledged copy of the RL350 lawn mower on a scale of 3 to 1.
The authors approached the idea with a high degree of irony, placing three rows of seats inside the car by analogy with the McLaren F1 sports car.
The engine for the car was a powerful 3.5-liter unit developed by Land Rover. A four-band automatic transmission borrowed from a Volkswagen Type 2 minibus made up a bundle for him.
In order for the advertising project to visually resemble a lawnmower robot RL350, Cummfy Banana engineers used an original tubular chassis, on which the body panels made of fiberglass were fixed.
The windshield alone for the car cost the customer 4,500 dollars. But the resulting car turned out to be a complete copy of what it should advertise. But he was unable to mow the grass. True, he fulfilled his purpose in full. From 1998 to 2001, the company sold more than 4 thousand copies of the RL350 model.
Friendly Robotics continues to work to this day, releasing lawnmower robots under the Robomow sub-brand.
