0-60mph in 2 seconds flat, a top speed of over 300mph and powered by liquid natural gas. We bring you the Prodigy by Maxximus.
Maxximus, the specialty car manufacturer, has just released a video describing their brand-new natural gas-powered supercar. The Prodigy, runs on LNG (Liquid Natural Gas) and will be as expensive as it is revolutionary. We have seen several new EV supercars lately, like the Rimac Automobili that recently made its world debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show and the all-electric Jaguar C-X75 concept that debuted at last year's Paris Motor Show.
The line of green super-machines just got a bit longer with the made-in-America Maxximus Prodigy. Based on the LNG 2000 prototype, the interior will feature a Rolls-Royce style of luxury and the project was backed by billionaire David Bruce McMahan. The Prodigy has a claimed output of 1600hp and can jump from 0-60mph in 2 seconds. Designer Marlon Kirby claims that the car will be able to eclipse the 300mph mark at top speed. They say you have to pay the cost to be the boss, and if you would like to get your eco-loving mitts on the Maxximus Prodigy supercar you need to drop at least a cool $1 million.
Five copies have already been reserved according to Maxximus. Check out the fully-American, naturally-powered supercar in the video below as well as comments made by its creators.
