The Rally Fighter is a mix between a baja truck, a dune buggy and a sports car. This combination is what makes this car unique in the world and strangely enough, it works big time. The wide tires, massive ground clearance, low roofline, playful but all-business front end and funky decals clearly make it out to be a toy for adults.
