    Cool, but I don't know why they named it after a gas station

    As a short sci-fi video it is well done. As a car, it is sci-fi. As real or as realistic or as likely to ever actually be built as the starship Heart of Gold. And not nearly as cool.

    Perhaps "Arco" is a pig-latin-like translation of "car".

    Nit: Not a fan of flashing words like revolutionary without at least hinting at "in what way" that applies.

    ^ It's "revolutionary" in that it can be whatever you want it to be. As in "make believe." Or, since it's nothing but a drawing of a "space age" exterior, i.e. a comic book, they couldn't really say anything about it, so they fell back on "revolutionary."

    Exactly my point. Word dilution.
