The News Minute | January 9, 2015 | 05.20 pm IST Have you ever seen a regular auto rickshaw doing wheelies, attempting casual drifts and believe it or not, spitting out flames 15 feet-long? One innocent, lean-mean red Tuk Tuk (or an autorickshaw), does just that, James Bond style ! At first glance it looks like a regular auto rickshaw you would see on Indian roads. Then, after a closer look in typical James Bond style, with the flick of a button, guns come popping out from behind the seats in this lean mean vehicle. It looks like a video straight out of a video game, because it is. Fitted with a CBR600 engine, this revamped little machine is not just any racing enthusiastÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s fantasy, but a paid-for project given to one man Colin Furze by French multinational video game developer Ubisoft in connection to one of its video games, Far Cry 4. What does it do? Ã¢â‚¬Å“Check it drift,light up the rears, shoot, wheelie and donut while spitting out15ft flames Ã¢â‚¬Å“ reads out its description. Â Â Â Â According to his blog, Furze bought a rickshaw off Ebay, and a CBR600 engine to boost the little machineÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s performance. Considering Indian roads and the kind of driving done here, all this probably could be done on a regular ride to work. Except for that fire-spitting bit.Â Â Tweet Follow @thenewsminute
