I'm just impressed more by the fact that someone is actually, at least, trying to make air powered cars work. I have always liked the idea of being able to pull my fuel right out of the air I'm driving through. Even if they make it something like a hybrid where it cruises on gas and accelerates up the 35mph (like the article stated they were planning). Using a compressor hooked up to the engine to refill the air tank once at speed would be just as efficient as any hybrid is today without the worry of replacing batteries, etc.
