Speedy sofa launches Intel Core 2 Duo

The sofa attracted plenty of attention, including from Amsterdam's police force.

"This isn't an everyday type of vehicle, so after 20 minutes of cruising through Amsterdam we had motorcycle cops pull us over," Sehmke said. "They asked what this vehicle was and why we're on the public roads with it." It took about half an hour to verify that the vehicle is, indeed, legitimate, he said.

The sofa was supplied by U.K.-based Cummfy Banana. It is fully street legal, with a U.K. Ministry of Transport and vehicle license, according to . The vehicle is powered by a midmounted 1300cc injection Mini engine. It does 0-60 miles per hour in 22 seconds. The couch seats a driver and two couch potatoes and comes only in leopard print fur.
