Chinese inventor Su Daocheng, spent two months working on what might be the weirdest transportation vehicle we've ever seen: a mechanical horse.

Looking like the world's oddest steampunk prop, the mechanical horse may lack the aerodynamic grace of your average living, breathing horse, but it does have a certain charm.

Built using spare metal and the engine from a car, Su's creation isn't particularly fast-moving, but it is eye-catching.

According to the Metro, Su was inspired by Zhuge Liang, a Chinese ruler who invented his own mechanical horse over 1000 years ago.

Su's other inventions include a mechanical elephant and a helicopter that was 'modified for road use' suggesting in fact that he has built, a car.
