Crap, the Tesla laughs its ass outta the looks of this piece of shizz's looks.


Whoever designed the front bumper and headlights, must've been high to do such a terrible job.

No but taking your own airship to work is

I don't know why companies are wasting their money on developing electric cars, i really don't. They'd be great if they didn't require an 11 hour charge every 150 miles.

By the time someone's created a way to charge them in 5 minutes we'll already have hydrogen cars. There's already a few hydrogen busses in my town.

Omw, seems almost too good to be true, 0-60 in 3.4 seconds wth?

250 miles / charge? I thought lithium batteries only lasted 2 years at the time of production???? This would be a huge flaw, hope those batteries are cheap to replace!

Regardless of how cool these cars "might" be, the cost makes them pointless, in fact, the whole point of electric is to save $ & gas, not to burn rubber!

The lime green one looks like a beetle f-40, YUK!

However, this whole hybrid BS needs to stop. You're taking the most expensive part of both types of cars, and combining them with an expensive interface.
That's untrue. An electric motor lays down all its torque at zero RPM. The torque tapers off as the motor spins up.

I saw that topgear too. It's true the batteries don't hold up if you're driving it at track speeds!

So things that suck is that cars and the infrastructure they require takes and a lot of place, which increase distances between where people lives and where they have to go, which require even more cars and infrastructure to people can go from one place to another fast.

The illusion that people need cars to go from one place to another is just caused by the fact that cars and infrastructure takes a lot of space.
If you build something high population-density, people live close to where they have to go, and they don't need cars, nor roads. That's the arcology part. Then, between two arcology, you can have a very high speed thing.

Within the arcology, you can have a rapid transit type transportation system on rail, or even two, for goods and people. So, if you want to order something online, it can be sent to your place AUTOMATICALLY within MINUTES, and it's very inexpensive.

Also, everyone,s crying about internet costs and UBB these days. Well, guess what: in an arcology, internet connection is gonna be ******* inexpensive too.

That's like living in the future, and that's what you want. Outside my arcology, there are gonna be ******* wolves roaming around, because another benefit of these high population density structure is that they don't create urban sprawls like car oriented city. So you live close to nature. How much more quality of life can you have when you can watch wolves eating and killing stuff while you eat your breakfast.

Soooooooooooomeone is working on a college term paper

while high










man.

I understand what youre saying but I disagree!

Yes it's about experience of driving, the feel of the engine thrust/rumble as you say. But perfecting shifting? Most of these are starting to come with so-called flappy paddle manual sequentials and theres no perfecting a slap of a lever at redline. However, perfecting a controllable amount of oversteer, launching properly, and looking baller while also looking ridiculous - that's supercar.

Aside from its plastic-y looks, it reminds me a little of a TVR Cerberus.

Speaking of TVRs and engine sounds...I almost forgot one of the most spectacular looking and sounding cars I've ever seen.
