    1. Why 8 wheels? I can’t see how it helps with anything.

    3. its because this sucker is really fast…I cant remember how fast it goes but I know it hauls ass…I saw a show on this not too long ago. I believe it is an electric car. Actually its the fastest electric car in the world. Its is know as the performance electric car.

    4. The Eliica (or the Electric Lithium-Ion Car) is a battery electric vehicle prototype, or concept car designed by a team at Keio University in Tokyo, led by Professor Hiroshi Shimizu. The 5.1 metre (16.7 feet) car runs on a lithium-ion battery and can accelerate from 0-100 km/h (60 mph) in four seconds. In 2004, the Eliica reached a speed of 370 km/h (230 mph) on Italy’s Nardo High Speed Track. The team’s goal is to exceed 400 km/h (250 mph), breaking the record set by today’s street-legal gasoline-powered vehicles

    5. Although I can not say why 8 wheels on this car…

      8 wheels means more rubber on the road, meaning you can break more effectively, better control during turning, ect.

    6. It’s certainly fast. But I’m not a big fan of the way it looks though…

    8. It has a sort of Citroen DS look to it actually… or is that just me?

    9. 8 wheels on the road would actually be detrimental to the speed of a vehicle. The more impact you have with the surface, the more friction you have, the more wasted energy, etc. Also, I can’t see how the dual turning wheels on the front would improve handling at all. If anything I would think it would make it worse by (again) increasing the area with which you’re working (i.e. the wheels would work even minimally against each other, even though they’re theoretically pointed in the same direction). Sure, an electric car can be fast. Look at the National Electric Drag Racing Association (www.nedra.com/). I just don’t see the point of the 8 wheels.

    10. phyreblade, after looking at that, the only logical conclusion is to assume that is was modeled after the citroen DS
