The concept comet seems to be getting serious

We've seen cross over between the love of anime and vehicles numerous times. For some reason one Gundam character and his iconic mecha seem to be called upon more often than any other. The one and only, Char Aznable and his lovely whips, like the Zaku II and Sazabi.

We took at peek this teamup a while back,, and it's developing to be way more elaborate than anything I can remember in recent history. They have gone as far as creating a brand called Zeonic, and are featuring the cute Toyota Auris decked out in Zeon glory. Could this lovely thing become more than a concept car? They seem to be putting a lot of effort and marketing behind it.

Alright fine, go ahead with the 3X faster jokes. I'm waiting.
