Compressed Air Technology Car

weather: sunny
outside: 16°C
mood: impressed
music: Cecilia Bartoli - Sposa Son Disprezzata (Vivaldi)

I'm impressed. An air powered automobile. It's an Compressed Air Technology (CAT) car.

It sucks in air, packs it down really tight (to 4,500 lbs/in²), then expands it to normal again. The heat generated by all this is what creates the propulsion. In fact, because of the way it filters the air going in, the stuff coming out is even CLEANER.

It takes 4 hours to charge the car in a regular household electric outlet. You can do it in 3 minutes with a special $100,000.00 compressed air station too, but that's only for super emergencies like wedding days, I guess =)

It goes from 0 - 50 miles per hour in seven (7) seconds. Husband Guy has been oggling over cars long enough for even me to know that this kicks a lot of ass.

It'll go for (USD)$10,000 - $14,000. It's definitely something to keep an eye out for.
