    I like how instead of just lifting the hood (bonnet) the whole body of the car lifts up.

    There are some other cars that lift big parts of the bodywork a bit like that.

    Lancia Stratos:

    And the Ford GT40...

    And of course big rig trucks:

    TEG posts a picture of my favorite car of all time!

    Too bad it's not electric.

    I like that the future version of the 1966 car was tailored to use a Fuel Cell in place of the batteries. But the Fuel cells of the day were too cumbersome, heavy and expensive.

    Yeah, that made me smile.

    Interesting that the "expensive" £1000 fuel cell would be the equivalent of £13330 in today's money.
