Nice, but too heavy, poor aerodynamci, making the solar power output not enough to supply the energy needs.
30.000 dollars in upgrade (to simple lead acid battery) and just 30 miles/hour (20mph without sun).

The earlier model bumpers and Chrome Jackman wheels are nice, but it needs an overall rake, curved solar panels and a Luigi Colani undertray to the panel array.
