The Human Car - surely the future of motoring
Stand aside Sir Clive Sinclair, there’s a new idiot car in town. Taking what the Sinclair C5 did, more or less ignoring it and doing something else instead is the Human Car.
The brainchild of scientist/inventor Charles Greenwood, the Human Car is an idea that he first had in 1968, and has seemingly only just realised. It runs on human power, duck eggs and dreams or something and if this isn’t the future then we’re a bunch of misguided idiots.
Amazingly, the contraption will set you back just $15,500 (that’s only £10k in the UK money) and you can put your flag in one with a deposit of only $50. That seems almost too good to be true – we’ve ordered ten and if they arrive, there’s every chance that we’ll give them away as competition prizes (there’s no chance – we’ll be keeping them).
On his website Charles Greenwood says that the Human Car is “…beautiful and it handles like a dream. It's fast, sexy, makes you ultra healthy and oh yeah, saves the planet. Welcome to the future.”
