That's one of the ugliest vehicles I have ever seen.

"sweeping lines, a heroic attempt at making a brick appear aerodynamic".

I nearly spit out my coffee.  Well, I guess this is yet another reminder that money doesn't buy taste.

If I ever see it, it'll be going 35 miles an hour, in the left lane, on a steep mountain ascent on a major interstate, driven by an old fuck. Guarantee it.

This mobile mansion will be built on a Volvo chassis and be powered by a Volvo engine for easy servicing. That trucking technology is essential, as there will be a hefty payload of marble, rose gold and hubris to haul around once Marchi Mobile locates a buyer for its Leviathan.

I wonder what the MPG GPM is?

Fixed that for you.

Yea lugging around all that hubris is sure to weigh you down.

Come on, IP, you know that just like planes, this gets measured in GPH - gallons per hour.

ZING!

Though, given that point, this means we now have to concede that its most fuel-efficient state is parked. That idea wounds my delicate sensibilities.

Why did I read the article! It's a CG bus concept (aka not even in production).

Nah.  They'll have a chauffeur.
