My dream car pal........
This car has to be so fun to drive. Who needs a Ferrari when this baby revs up to 13,500 rpm's ?

With electric motors efficiency typically improves with higher power. So any hp race that might ensue would not be criticized from the perspective of wasting energy.

Man tpe, if I won the lottery I'd own one of those Tesla Roadster's. That thing is very sweet. Especially in that blaze orange color to out run the red and blues. J/K

13,500 is okay, but the Venturi Fetish goes to 14.

Wow, bumpy you never seem to not amaze me with the cars you find and info you give me. That is a very awesome car pal. where's it made ? France ? It sure is expensive !!!! I'd buy the Tesla, as it looks like a better car and has more features and take the extra money $500+K and go on lots of road trips to golf courses.

and most of the cost in in the carbon-fiber unibody shell which keeps the weight down. Driving a Fetish is probably like stuffing a LS2 in a first-gen Miata, but a lot smoother and quieter (no intake or exhaust noise and no engine vibration).

Not impressed. The car would be a hoot if you live in Manhattan but most California commuters would not be able use it for one round trip commute.
