I don’t feature cars on this blog but this is an interesting idea which points out two things:

1. How much the Auto industry is addicted to unsustainable expansion and

2. How much we’re addicted to the idea of performance in terms of raw Horse Power

Below is a car with a 75hp engine (as a point of reference I produce between .25 and .75 hp when cycling) and it could have probably been fast-enough for driving anywhere. In traffic speeds average aproximately 15kph when you take other traffic into account.
