Much more fuel efficient than that 1200hp pig Veyron: http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/noframes/31619.shtml

Goes down to 3 mpg at "cruising" speed...

My M5 V10 got that kind of mileage (hey, at 1/8 the cost of the Veyron!). The only thing it couldn't pass was a gas station. Holy crap that car was fun, though.

I'm watching an orange one of those right now on Top Gear. 40 grand for a set of tires and only one place in the US to have them mounted?

Re: Not another plug in hybrid

Dave is waiting for the hybrid SMB. 1000# of battery wouldn't be such a big deal on that. But, imagine how many solar panels he would need!
