I was driving to San Francisco to visit my girlfriend's family
when I so an orange skinny car on the road. I had to drive closer to
investigate. And to my surprise this is what I saw.
After further research I learned that this could be the world's slimmest
car and that this car retails for $150,000. This is the tango electric car.

Worlds fastest street legal ELECTRIC CAR 1972 Datsun 1200 Whtie Zombie.
This car is based in Oregon... there are something like 18 hydro electric
power plants in that state! Hydro generation accounts for 58% of all
electricity in Oregon (Over 70% in Washington) and coal accounts for less
Only about 15% of the energy from the fuel you put in your tank gets used
to move your car down the road or run useful accessories, such as air
conditioning. The rest of the energy is lost to engine and driveline
inefficiencies and idling. Therefore, the potential to improve fuel
efficiency with advanced technologies is enormous. With an Electric Car it
costs just $1.00 per 100kms with MUCH more performance than with petrol at
$20.00 per 100kms.
EVs use between 1/6th and 1/10th the energy of a comparable ICE powered

Tango v Tesla @ Infineon Nov 30th
On Nov 30th, the fastest production electric vehicles in the U.S. went
head-to-head. While their first meeting had a number of issues, most
notably the underfilled Tango battery pack, and the Tesla's non-upgraded
drivetrain, the 1/4 mile time is quite close and indicative of races to
In this race, the Tango got 92.15mph in 14.480 seconds, beating its 14.7
"dial" handicap and thus losing the competition; the Tesla got 101.23mph in
14.666 seconds, slower than its 14.5 "dial" handicap and allowing it to
proceed to the next round. (Two rounds later, the Tango's driver got
behind the wheel of the Tesla and also beat its "dial" handicap... and thus
Epilogue: the cars compete in different voltage classes, and thus both were
able to set NEDRA records for fastest production electric vehicle that day.

for production electric vehicle was the GM EV-1, at 16.26 seconds and

The 2012 Fastest Street Car in America! - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 19
This episode of HOT ROD Unlimited screams with action from 200-mph street
cars at one of the most grueling events in all of motorsports: HOT ROD Drag
Week, presented by Gear Vendors. This is the most brutal test anywhere of
real drag-racing, street-driven cars, as the competitors hit the road for
1,400 miles to race five times at four different drag strips in five days
in a battle to post the lowest average elapsed time at the end of the week.
The winner is crowned the HOT ROD Fastest Street Car in America. In this
video, we'll follow the chase for that title in Drag Week's most outrageous
class, called Unlimited. Imagine cars that run 7 seconds in the quarter
mile, in excess of 200 mph, and then drive on public roads—in the rain,
over potholes, whatever it takes—to make it to the next race day to do it
again. Five times. Ever see a 2,800-horsepower car hauling its
own trailer full of tools and parts? You will here. When you wonder how the
staff of HOT ROD could ever make the statement that a Lamborghini Aventador
"isn't $400,000 fast," this video will prove why with legit American street
cars in a battle of speed and survival.
HOT ROD Unlimited appears every other Friday on the new Motor Trend
