Was this wrecked, but mobile car in a bomb blast or a jaws of life practice?

To most, the sight of this car cruising through a New Zealand city would leave us gobsmacked.

But in the Middle East (believed to be Iran) the chap tootling along the motorway in this little torn-apart vehicle remains remarkably unperturbed.

It seems unlikely we'll ever know exactly what happened to the car to put it in this state, but it is interesting to note that while resembling a tortured sardine can, the vehicle seems to run okay and the lights etc all seem to work

When watching the video clip, keep a look out for an identical, but well-maintained version of the car pulling alongside.
