As you may have already guessed, the RocketNews24 office is pretty well stocked with adventurous eaters. Over the years, our staff have chowed down on deep-fried axolotl, chicken ramen ice cream, chocolate noodles, and more, but we’re always up for a new challenge to tantalize our (now mostly deadened) taste buds.

Outdoor barbecues are the epitome of summer fun. But if you live in Japan, you’re sure to be drenched in sweat after ten minutes in the hot, humid weather. Luckily, Nissan created a solution to the hassle and heat of the typical cookout: the Ultimate Smart BBQ vehicle. The all-electric compact car includes everything you’ll need for a summer barbecue, including the grill and high-tech mosquito repellant, and comes with some things you might not necessarily need, like a “flying selfie camera.”
“With this electric vehicle, you can always enjoy a BBQ that goes far beyond your expectations,” commented Osamu Suzuki, editor-in-chief of the Nissan Social Project. Intrigued? Check out this crazy car after the jump!
