The Scorpion is a 55 feet long, 40 feet wide, 38 feet tall exact replica of a female emperor scorpion named Fluffy.­ The Scorpion boasts a computer controlled 7 gun flame thrower off the tail, 20 hydraulic points which make the arms legs, tail, and claws all move in a sinister spider manner including hydraulics which make the entire truck lift off the ground to produce the most eerie of effects.­

The giant scorpion art car was one of the mightiest thing on the playa this year.­

Those art cars are heavily decorated and customized vehicles that are used during the Burning Man festival.­

Most art cars are not street-legal, but some are, and they can be spotted occasionally on the road or on city streets.­

Burning Man is yearly gathering of about 70,000 people, many from the San Francisco Bay Area, celebrating love, life, passion and art during one week in a desolated desert in Nevada.­

The event takes place each last week of august in an immense dry lakebed called Black Rock Desert.­ A temporary city is built where about everything is permitted except violence, money and commerce.­

The culmination of the event is the burning of a large human-shape figure in a giant bonfire, hence the name (Burning Man).­ The city disappears completely at the end of the week, leaving no trace.­
