The Carver from Venture Vehicles has gear turners and gadget lovers turning heads and raising questions.

Is it a motorcycle? Is it a car? Is it a fighter plane without wings? One thing's for certain; The Carver One from Venture Vehicles is one insane hybrid vehicle! This innovative flex fuel coup boasts a revolutionary 45 degree side-to-side tilt allowing you steer it like a car, but when cornering it banks like a motorcycle while you feel like you are flying a jetfighter! To get the full idea, take a look at the demonstration in the video below, brought to you by the BBC Program TopGear:

With an anticipated ticket price of $20,000, this is definitely a big boy's toy, but what a toy it is! This unique 2-passenger flex fuel Hybrid vehicle is projected to achieve 100 miles per gallon, accelerate from 0-60 in about 7 seconds, and with a top speed of over 100 mph. There is some speculation that the US version of the Carver will come equipped with a speed governor, but I suppose we'll have to wait and see. The first round of Carvers won't be available in the US until 2009.
