Electric muscle car of the future

French design students create a sci-fi Audi

Crave's car tech experts warned us not to get too excited about this because it's only a concept model, but we couldn't resist. The photos alone are just too delicious to pass up.

The proposed electric Audi R-Zero, which Treehugger says was created by three students at France's International School of Design, looks like something right out of a sci-fi movie. In fact, some sharp-eyed readers have noted its similarities to another Audi concept developed for the 2004 movie "I, Robot."

Its proposed specs are equally fantastic, with four in-wheel motors that would supposedly yield "a top speed of 286 mph, 1091 horsepower, and 0-62 in 3 seconds." Real or not, we'd still rather linger over its renderings than view real photos of some green alternatives now on the market.
