We all experienced pranks, like when you wake up after a long night and you don’t find your car anymore. But imagine finding an entire hive “resting” in the wheel arch of your motor. That’s how the owner of a Nissan Micra from Portsmouth, England found his ride this morning.
The car belongs to George Neal from Portsmouth, England. Rory Edwards, George Neal’s housemate, actually filmed how the car was being used like a stopover for 20,000 bees. Edwards seemed to be pretty calm about the hole little adventure. “It was a bit of strange sight. The bees were pretty timid though - they weren’t really interested in anything but George’s car. Maybe they wanted a lift”, told Edwards to ITV.

According to The Huffington Post, the phenomenon is relatively common this time of year as swarms accompany their queen to new hives.

As to the car, we’ll remind you that Nissan Micra, a supermini car produced by the Japanese-market Nissan Cherry was exclusive to Nissan Japanese dealership network Nissan Cherry Store until 1999. The five doors hatchback is the second generation built and launched in Japan in early 1992 and released in Europe in the forth quarter of the year.

The car won the European Car of the Year award for 1993 and the Good Design Award (a Trade and Industry Design award) along with the Car of the Year Japan award in 1992.
