Which parts move?A lot. You can open the boot, as we’ve mentioned, but also the roof comes off and the doors and bonnet open. The seats push forward, and there’s even a spare wheel in a hidden compartment in the boot.

I’m sold, even for £75 (S$158). When’s it out?It’ll be on sale in August. So you’ve got a bit of time to save up.
