    When you have a mil to drop on a car, you don't have to worry about gas prices.

    Batteries can give performance figures hard to top with an ICE, especially acceleration. But, even if super-wealthy, you are not going to want to drive this thing all the time. I wonder what features it had to protect the batteries if not used frequently.

    All supercars generally look cool, this one is no exception. But, it looks like someone took a wax model of a 1970's corvette and pointed a hot blowtorch at it for a few seconds to create the lines.
