Fun Facts about Hypercars

  • Very light weight, very strong (carbon fiber, the same as Formula One race cars)
  • Less wind resistance
  • More efficient electric accessories (A/C, CD player, etc.)
  • Increase fuel efficiency dramatically
  • Windows let in light, but not heat (reducing need for A/C)

Amory says it’s possible we’ll see hypercars on the market within 4 to 5 years. Hopefully my car can hold out that long, then I’ll spring for a crazy efficient hypercar and watch my gas savings pile up.
