If a car is pure electric it can't be awesome to me.

no this is a different car. the one featured a couple days ago was about the super based on this design
Bren Bracken Sep 11, 2012
This was just explained yesterday or two days ago totally different
Adam Thomson Nov 17, 2012
Looks like the old XJ220 pretty good looking though
Dave Winn Sep 13, 2012
Looks absolutely stunning! Would you really want to blast past people in this, or use the turbine power to cruise along and get noticed!
Zachary Crowley Sep 12, 2012
Yeah because the low gas mileage is really digging deep into these consumer's pockets right johnathon?
Nicolas Pons Sep 11, 2012
Cause it's slower and louder
Brandon Lidy Sep 11, 2012
Pretty sure those figures are estimates. Estimates that are based on their micro turbines which aren't going to be used
Jonathan Romero Sep 11, 2012
@ Nick you obviously didn't read the article on this, this machine makes over 1000 ft pounds of torque and can go 0-62 in a bit over 3 sec... Why the heck do you want to put a gas gusling V12 -______-
Nick Benz Sep 11, 2012
This looks to good to be a demonstration of electric power. Just put in the V12!

This is far from a supercar looks like the old Citroen DS...

Nie na 4 to moze na 8 ;)
Andrew Palmer Sep 12, 2012
I'm curious about the turning radius and, for that matter, handling....I saw a video of this and it went really fast with like 6 people in it...on a giant banked oval. It proves huge things can go fast, unsure of why you'd want to in a school bus.
Bailey McLendon Sep 11, 2012
Can it float too?
Trey Villarreal Sep 11, 2012
Looks like a building that fell over and landed on some tires.
Brandon Lidy Sep 11, 2012
If this can actually reach 230, it must take it an additional 10 hours to get there.
Erik Scherer Sep 11, 2012
Shoot a turd out of a cannon, and it'll probably do 230, also!
Jeff Link Sep 11, 2012
This is the ugliest thing that I have ever seen. I get someone being drunk and writing the picture of this down on some napkin...but how did someone not tap him on the shoulder and say "dude, this is f'in ugly!"
Dillon Magee Sep 11, 2012
That is ugly. But 230 in it would be really cool.
Cameron Patterson Sep 11, 2012
They need to stop making cars like this cause they are UUUUUUUGGGGGGGGLLLLLY
Cole Staples Sep 11, 2012
What the haillll!
Corey Mullis Sep 11, 2012
who cares how fast it is if it looks like that
Nick Schnee Sep 11, 2012
Now that I think of it, I'd love killing Lambos, Ferraris and the like in this thing.
Daniel Eads Sep 11, 2012
Just passed the aztec as the ugliest car.
Dale Schroeder Sep 11, 2012
I need to see video of this thing in motion. If it really can hit 230 mph, then... oh my goodness.
Jordan Jackson Sep 11, 2012
This... Is a supercar?
Nick Schnee Sep 11, 2012
What the hell...?
Description: Bristol is reportedly developing an electric supercar in collaboration with Proton. The supercar would be powered by four in-wheel electric motors separated into two powertrains. Bristol's electr...

Looks like an integra, corvette, and viper all put together to produce one insanely ugly car
Bill Estep Jr Sep 12, 2012
Looks like an older SLR body wit Subaru SVX windows n Celica headlights
Brandon Lidy Sep 11, 2012
Looks like a mutilated TVR
Scott Gracey Sep 11, 2012
I see the dodge Acura thing lol
Nicolai Stålstrøm Dalen Sep 11, 2012
Looks like a TVR to me aswell.
Dan Ruth Sep 11, 2012
I don't know what you guys are talking about, this looks exactly like a car tvr would produce.
Nick Benz Sep 11, 2012
I dont think it does. Looks like they took an viper and tried to make it into an old acura. Blegh
Dale Schroeder Sep 11, 2012
Kind of an odd mishmash of retro styles going on. It works though.
Bailey McLendon Sep 11, 2012
The back looks like an old Alfa

its only like 1900 kilos and it has torque vectoring really cool stuff
mitch powell Sep 11, 2012
not sure how much it weighs, but im guessing since it has batteries it is heavy...
Brandon Lidy Sep 11, 2012
Te 0-60 looks good but considering it has 1100hp, that top speed is a little low. Anyone know the torque numbers ?
Nicolas Pons Sep 11, 2012
Acceleration, auto correct... You failed me
Nicolas Pons Sep 11, 2012
And in most cases it'll still bet those cars in race just for acceleratiob
Daniel Eads Sep 11, 2012
It all has to do with the power band.
Noah Gavurin Sep 11, 2012
"the top speed is too low hurr durr" before anyone posts that, when was the last time you went over 190mph in a car?
Charles Pope Sep 12, 2012
my god, this is the perfect car
Bailey McLendon Sep 11, 2012
Want to see the back
Derek Hedtke Sep 11, 2012
wow i wish i had the money to afford one of these
Austin Bride Sep 11, 2012
This is really damn good

It technically is possible, though the amount of wattage required would probably burn your house down.
Dillon Magee Sep 11, 2012
There is no way you can charge 1200 hp in 10 min. Unless the battery lasts like 2 minutes.
Matthew Malyapa Sep 11, 2012
my traxxas slash cant even charge in this time!?!?!??!?!?!
Austin Bride Sep 11, 2012
Typo? You can't even charge an rc battery in ten minutes
Erik Scherer Sep 11, 2012
Maybe a solid color?
