Wind car

This is amazing. Man have we gone backwards. Check out the elegance of this car made in 1973. That is what needs to be reinvented for the X prize.

1970s Jim turned his attention to sail design, inventing new rigs for small sailboats that greatly increased their efficiency. When his then teenage son, Douglas, asked him to design an iceboat, Jim dreamed up a vessel of extraordinary beauty and astonishing aeronautical potential that attained speeds 4.3 times the speed of the wind.
