The US government discovers part of an ancient alien artifact made of some super metal. A secret project to locate and reassemble the...

The Ultraman themed Toyota M78x86

I would have thought the guys in the SSSP would want something a little more utilitarian, but this Toyota is for Ultraman. Not very inspiring, this Toyota looks like a Toyota. They've added some mildly reminiscent of Ultraman touches -- like the name "M78" referring to Ultraman's home planet. Also, watch out!
