Trouble with the local homeless window washers? Want that extra measure of safety in this murderous world? Well, you need a 100,000 volt tesla coil strapped to the roof of your vehicle, it’ll bring new meaning to the term “electric car”.

Obviously, it’s not a real theft protection device, but it’s damn cool either way.

Peter Terren is the one who built this weird contraption and shot the video.
