Pivo

    Nissan has come up with a way to help drivers back out of tight parking spots.

    The Japanese automaker has developed an egg-shaped car whose body pivots 360 degrees so that its rear end becomes the front.

It's an electric three-seater. The steering, wheels, and other parts are controlled electronically by wireless signals, not mechanical links.

It's called the Pivo. Not sure how it would sell in Slovenia or other Slavic lands where "pivo" means "beer" (my mom would be very proud of me now).

How about this pivo belly? It's also egg-shaped, and roughly the same size as the car.
