<skeptical fluff> yeh, cute, and its nice to see for once somoene actualy
shows a solar powered charging system rather than the standard "charge off the
grid" which is still usualy burning fossil fuel, just shifting the emmisions
from the exaust pipe to the chimney stack.

but i still say "bahumbug" .. even if they have managed to get speed/torque
from an electric power plant, it will never compare to the raw visceral
experience of an unfetterd bigblock v8 when you put your foot down. without
the sound you might as well be behind a desk instead of behind the wheel

Put some big speakers in and play the sound of a big engine!
