This Girasole electric car juices up at a regular wall outlet for about $1 worth of energy, has a top speed of 45MPH, and can travel 75 miles before needing a recharge. OK, I'm with you so far. What makes it stand out from the crowd of other relatively impractical electric cars?
Well, since it runs so quietly people worried that it wouldn't warn pedestrians of its impending arrival. The solution? Horse hooves, of course. Yes, the Girasole electric car sounds like a horse galloping as it approaches, a throwback to a time that no one on this planet was alive for. Call me crazy, but the sound of a horse flying at me would be more confusing than reasonably warning. But hey, I guess any loud sound would work. Why not create a car that sounds like an old man coughing? Get out of the way! I hear that phlegmy cough coming around the corner! No? Ah well.
