Street-legal open-wheeled limousine aims for 300mph

You thought Obama's new Cadillac presidential limo/tank was outrageous? This crazy open-wheel Formula 1-style vehicle carries six white-knuckled passengers to their destinations, pronto. Its designer-builder Michael Pettipas hopes it'll zip along at an astonishing 300mph.

It had to happen. If Hummer limousines are okay, why not an open-wheeled race car? And believe it or not, this odd-looking road rocket is street legal. We can't wait to put on our helmets and go for a ride, hoping for a sunny day — because those raindrops must inflict a fierce sting at 300mph.
