Want to know the low point of my trip to Monterey for last week's Car Week festivities? It wasn't the four-hour layover in Phoenix or getting stuck in the horrible traffic surrounding the event. No, it happened at the Concorso Italiano, when after strolling through the fields of gorgeous Alfa Romeo Montreals, Maserati Meraks, shockingly rust-free Lancia classics and the largest and most varied collection of Ferrari and Lamborghini gorgeousness that I've ever laid eyes on, I stumbled across this – the Youabian Puma.

Why it was at the Concorso, I've no idea. But there it was, in all its big – and I mean big – blue fury, standing in stark contrast to the beautiful sheetmetal that populated the lawn at Monterey's Black Horse Golf Course.

This is, so far as we recall, the first time we've seen the Puma in motion and playing in traffic. In case you somehow missed its memorable debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show last November, we're now offering you the chance to see this curvy, $1.1M leviathan for yourselves. It's worth watching, if only to better appreciate the scale of the Puma out on public roads. It's quite... something.

      If I had $2million I would buy two and crash them into each other.

      This body design reminds me a lot of the first time I tried to use a 3D modeling program. I drew some stuff, stretched it, moved it around, things got horribly out of control, and... Youabian Puma.

      Makes the Aztek look like a work of art!

      Headline should read "Rug Dealer Goes on Bad Acid Trip and Designs Car"

        The designer is actually a plastic surgeon. I'd hate to see what he's done to his patients.

      So, I can either buy this thing or a McLaren P1?  (the latter of which will only go up in value as time goes by)


      Hmm...

      Wow...

      In motion or sitting still, its the ugliest thing Ive ever seen. I remember the creator of that, uh, thing, tried to sue Jalopnik, stating their comments about the vehicle's design were "derogatory". LOL  That thing makes the Honda Crosstour look like amazing.

        If he thought Jalopnik made derogatory remarks about it, then wait until he sees what's brewing in AB's comments...

      It's like a train wreck - you can't look away.

      You'd have to be one step away from a lobotomy to even consider dropping $1.1M on this atrocity...

      Why.  Why take a Volvo V70 and butcher it like that?

      What I wanna know is,  if someone paid YOU $1.1M to drive this car everyday...  would you?
