That sounds very cool! It also sounds similar to something my uncle was telling me about 25-30 years ago. He said that GM(?) was experimenting with a car that would not have a starter but instead would start the car as in the above. I think he said that there was a small motor that could be used to spin the engine over to get a reference point in case of 12V failure/replacement.
