of a whole range it seems.

"What we want to do is to sell as many iStream licences to as many people for as many different cars as possible, all around the world," Prof Murray says, hoping to kick-start an automotive revolution.

"It's not a small step forward, it's a massive step," he says.

"We've really ripped up the rule book and thrown it out of the window."

Clever guy. Glad to see he is still pushing the barriers no matter what he’s doing.

Looks like the 21st century equivalant of a bubble car.

I think that the Indian firm (Tata???) that took over the Jaguar etc. have already produced a car that runs on compressed air.

Just hope it does not rain because the whole of the front end (inc roof) opens the inside will get wet.

Shame about the top speed! It it were geared to a top speed of about 55mph then it would be even more economical and also have better aceleration in lower gears.
