The Volkswagen Beetle has always been a very round car. In its first iteration, its bubble-shaped roof and front hood always seemed to be attempting to find equilibrium with its sloping rear, and that trend only seemed to continue as generations went on. Now, it looks like that equilibrium has been reached.

No, a deep gravity well at the center of the car has not sucked the ends together, and no, no one has taken Torchinsky's Beetle again, balled it up, and tried to teach him a lesson. Rather, Indonesian artist Ichwan Noor created this sculpture out of an actual 1953 Volkswagen for an exhibition in Hong Kong, according to This Is Colossal.


Might be a good joke on Torch, though, if we just tell him we used his.
