I found this while i was looking up some info on the truck LED's - Truck-lite designed these for use in Iraq, and they meet DOT requirements for headlights. Looking at the power requirements, their real selling point is the 10,000 hours of bulb life

World's First 7" LED DOT Headlamp Released -- World’s First 7” Round LED Headlamp Shows Bright Possibilities for Commercial Applications

They draw 57.6 watts each on high beam (115.2 watts total), and 32 watts each on low beam (64 watts total). Bolt in replacement for Par 56, H6014 and H6024.

Two arms and one leg?

MSRP $1,499.99 for a pair or $749.99 each

Found them online for $649.99 per pair here

TruckLite’s 7” LED Headlight - Trucklite Military LED Lamps

They had to do the sealed beam style because US DOT (NHTSA) won't allow changing the light source style in a composite lamp assembly. I believe they do allow changing the light source in a sealed beam assembly, since the lens, reflector, and lightsource are all the same unit.

...can't use them on any of our current cars, but was remembering how I switched the yellow fog lamps on my 70 Cuda out for 12VDC "aircraft landing" lamps which could blister paint at 50 feet (ha,ha). Only really used them on divided highways at night cause they were REALLY BRIGHT.

Here are some LED aircraft landing lights for $189.95, from Aircraft Spruce Co. Perhaps we could use one high power light, and run fiber-optics out to the front of the car for the headlights. Like some of those decorative light displays do.
SUNLITE LANDING LIGHTS
The SUNLite is a wing-mounted LED (Light Emitting Diode) landing light with a built-in wig wag mode in addition to its standard operation as a landing/taxi light. The AeroSUNLite is a very intense light source that uses 4 high power LEDs to produce up to 800 lumens of light using 12 watts of power.

It is the latest "iteration" of my former "Auto X-Prize" car, which died on the vine due to funding "issues". As I explained to Neil, I also lost my shop to work in, as well as the AutoCad I was designing on. For lack of CAD, I went to PhotoShop to get a reasonable facsimile beyond paper drafting. It actually has*, four wheels, four seats, and is a propane fueled hybrid.



*..."has", as in what it will have, if and when completed?
