Do not adjust your set – or your smartphone – this Volkswagen Beetle really is sitting this low to the road.

While it might look like a glitch in the Matrix, it’s actually the brainchild of car enthusiast, Blake Parson.

It looks like a Volkswagen Beetle has sunk into the ground.

Rather than a car, a custom go-kart frame is sitting underneath the hood of the Volkswagen Beetle bodywork.

And while it’s in the running for the title of the lowest car of all time – it could also definitely win a limbo contest.

Some commenters on the post by Benjamin Battles, which has amassed over 33K likes over the three days since it was posted, were strangely irritated by Parson’s creation.

“This is getting dumber by the day all they want is attention like small-minded children grow up be a man not a side show. Go cart [sic] frame under destroyed VW for what????? Attention,” said one.

“No, it’s not. It’s not a car. It can’t be driven on the street. Which is the basic function of a ‘car’. At best it’s a go cart. Nothing wrong with that, just don’t call it a car,” said a second.

Others were keen to defend what they considered a bit of fun.

“It’s not that serious it’s just a silly project,” one comment read.

“The lowest Fiat Panda: FINALLY, A worthy opponent!” another commented.

Speaking of which – the Fiat in question that previously held the title of the world’s lowest car.

This Fiat Panda that was cut in half by the ‘Carmagheddon’ group – who were also behind this car with a giant exhaust.

They managed to create the world’s smallest car by slicing below the windows of the Fiat Panda.

The bottom half of the vehicle has then been switched out for a go-kart, elevated by just four small wheels.

But despite being incredibly low to the ground, it drives just like any other car.

It seamlessly moves across gravel when put to the test, while making crowds gather in disbelief in the process.

Just be sure to swerve those potholes – and puddles – in these creations.

Unlike this Toyota FJ Cruiser, which braved recent Dubai flooding to come to the rescue of a school bus – these cars-cum-go-karts would not fare so well in inclement weather.
