BMW has designed a 42-wheeled, 19 engine super sports car - all in order to help realise a four-year-old boy's dream.

The amazing invention was inspired by a reader of motoring website Jalopnik, who asked for help turning his nephew's dream car into reality.

On the site, reader 'Ben' said that his nephew Eli had very specific demands.

First, the car had to be a BMW. Second, it had to have 42 wheels, 19 Porsche engines with 459 horsepower each (linked to a single transmission) and three steering wheels.

The car also had to have a trunk full of toys.

The reader asked for help from artists to realise the dream - and eventually BMW themselves decided to help.

They produced this incredible - in all senses of the word - drawing, which totally fulfils the promise of Eli's dream.

"Eli, we think you might be onto something. Our marketing department worked a little photoshop magic to bring your dream to life. We'll be sure to pass this on to our product designers."
