Well here’s one that’s rather off the wall.
Created by Loren Kulesus, the Cadillac World Thorium Fuel Concept (WTF) is designed to last 100 years without any normal maintenance. That means tires, gas, oil, or anything for that matter. How would they go about achieving this, you might ask? Apparently they’re using something called “Thorium” (Element #90 for those of you that failed chemistry like me) to use as a Nuclear Fuel powering the batteries. That sounds rather sketchy. I don’t know about you, but I’d rather not be sitting inside of a nuclear powered cheese grater every morning.
As far as tires go, well, there aren’t any. No rubber, at all. In fact, there’s 6 individual wheels located at each corner of the car, making a grand total of 24 wheels in total with an induction motor for each wheel. WTF Indeed…I somehow doubt this nuclear powered, 24 wheeled, nonsensical, monolithic pile of fail is going to make it out of the concept stage, but that just might be me. Here’s to the Cadillac World Thorium Fuel concept…WTF?!?
