Electric vehicle technology has made great strides in the past year, as evidenced by that wicked-fast and sexy Tesla Roadster and now the Velozzi you see here. While the Tesla is a real vehicle that'll be shipping this fall, the Velozzi is a hybrid sports car concept whose creator makes bold claims, such as a 0-to-60 time of 3 seconds and a 200-mph top speed.
Beyond those incredible numbers, it gets better. The Velozzi can run on just about any type of fuel, such as gasoline, ethanol, methanol, diesel, or biodiesel. The fuel powers a micro-turbine which charges the car's highly efficient lithium-ion battery pack. It's an electric car that doesn't need to be plugged in, and will be able to travel 200 mpg on the fuel it takes to charge its batteries. Wow.
The best news? Team Velozzi will freely offer the use of its innovative ideas to all takers. Could be some world-changing tech.
