    pie in the sky, especially the Hyper Charge. Sounds like the hypothetical hyper Drive of star-ship enterprise. Who is going to hold that 2 megawatt Hyper cable in his tender hand?

    That could be designed by child on a Mac and Racer X design sound's fake.Did Sprital and Chim Chim help copy an Audi?.There was a string of scam's in the early 70's with car company's popping overnight to solve the energy crisis .This seem's like one of those and it's origin's are most likely Eastern European.

    Picture the future. I can imagine the car being plugged in by a robot because nobody is strong enough to actually lift a charge cable substantial enough to carry that much amperage. Then as the charge is initiated, the entire city of Chicago {or where-ever our hero lives} goes through a 10 minute brown-out whilst this car charges.

    The 'front grille design evokes old Alfa Romeos'. In your opinion, that's completely fine. In my opinion, the grille evokes the design from the Ford Edsel, and we all know what that car was famous for. Despite the car looking so new and fresh and cool like the first time I saw the Citroen C6, I'll always see what the Chreos shares with the Edsel.

    Brian I assume you meant the Edsel failed because of the grille shape,in fact it failed because of an overlap in products. There was no market place for it in the Ford line up at that time. I actually rode in a spanking new one in 1958 with steering wheel hub transmission push buttons but couldn't convince my father to buy.
    I think this concept is like the Citroen C6 in overall shape and proportions.

    I should have looked at the video first, nothing like the Cit C6 which is much nicer.Forward placement of the front wheels are more like BMW.

    Now you mention it Brian, I see the Edsel resemblance! I was being a little kinder, and thinking more of an early 1960s Alfa Giulietta Sprint.

    The copy writer for that commercial should be fired.
