A mechanic from Oxfordshire, England, has built an adult-size version of a classic children's toy, the Little Tikes Cozy Coupe

John Bitmead, working with his brother and boss, spent 1,000 hours over five months re-purposing a Daewoo Matiz into the grown-up Cozy Coupe.

When the BBC asked Bitmead what parts he wanted to most faithfully recreate, he replied “I had to have no windows, because that is absolutely what the toy is."

But rather than foot-to-floor power (or a parent's pushing), this Cozy Coupe runs on gasoline and can reach up to 70 mph. It also has an airbag, headlights, mirrors, and two drink holders.

Watch it take the streets in this video, and check out the whole transformation process here.
