Finally, a Cozy Coupe sized for adults. Attitude Autos
In late 2013, your childhood memories got super-sized when UK custom auto shop Attitude Autos created a large, street-legal Little Tikes Cozy Coupe.
A Cozy Coupe is the iconic red toy car that can still be spotted sitting in driveways everywhere at homes with little kids. It was many a person’s first pedal-powered vehicle.
The adult-sized Cozy Coupe is now available for a lucky buyer to take home. It’s currently up for auction on eBay with a roughly $33,240 (£21,500, AU$45,722) price tag. Attitude Autos is selling its eye-catching creation for a set price, but it’s willing to entertain offers if you want to try your luck at getting a better deal.
The Cozy Coupe started life as a 2000 Daewoo Matiz, a subcompact hatchback. It’s had only 5,000 miles (8,047 kilometers) of road use during its life as the Tiny Tikes replica. It spent most of its time toodling around the UK visiting car shows and charity events. Attitude Autos notes it is “guaranteed to create smiles wherever it goes.”
Attitude Autos will arrange to ship the car for the actual shipping price without extra fees, but potential American buyers should keep in mind that the car has right-hand drive. The original plastic Cozy Coupes have what you might describe as “center drive.” That’s one advantage of the big car: you can fit two people into it.
The Cozy Coupe has other specs that make it superior to the plastic version. Most notably, it can hit 70 mph (113 kph). It doesn’t have a windscreen, though, so you’ll need to wear a helmet to keep the bugs out of your face.
