This little rocket of a car is the creation of XR3 Motors. The plug-in hybrid looks slightly like a spaceship, especially with its silver paint, but Robert Riley's three-wheeled ‘personal transit vehicle’ (PTV) might be just what we need here on earth.

"The drivetrain consists of 23hp diesel engine, and Li-Ion battery pack powering electric motors, but both systems are working at, we think, opposite ends of the car," Wired explains.

And no, that's not Sarah Palin in the third photo.
