    You cant have too many threads about a car like this. If this is the future then get a move on!

    Imagine the conversation with your mates.

    You "It does 0 to 60 in 3.4 seconds using electric motors"

    Them "But these electric cars have a crap top speed"

    You "Is 205mph enough for you?"#

    Them "Bet the batteries go flat after a few miles"

    You "When they run low, you just fire up the twin jet engines"....

    There is also a sticker on the back saying "Stand Clear of Blast Zone" how cool is that.

    How much of this concept will make it into production and are the turbines a viable alternative for an IC motor? What about the niose factor of the turbines? Ok.... I like the overall design.

    We'll see. 250 to be made in partnership with Williams F1. It seems that the conventional part of the hybrid setup will be petrol/ICE rather than turbine, but maybe next time ;-)

    £700k each (around US$1.2M), since you ask, but it is expected to be a full half-second quicker to 60MPH than the roadster.

    It's not just about speed William...the cars you list (Nissan GTR / Vette / Shelby), to coin a phrase, "ain't ecologically sound"...
