This car is by far the silliest thing I have ever seen on four wheels, if that is what they are even called on this thing. The Venturi Eclectic car claims it is the world’s first “energy-autonomous” vehicle. They equipped the circus looking car with a solar panel and a wind turbine so it can get power from the elements. It also has a plug for recharging from an outlet, which I’m sure is the way this will be charged 99.99% of the time because the panel and turbine combined give you only 14 miles a day (If you live in Florida during a Hurricane). The “vehicles” go on sale next summer for $31,000 and they are Limited Editions; only 200 are being made. I’m sure they will sell out quick. Production models won’t be made until 2009. I’m so excited I could pee myself.
