This Salt Water-Powered Supercar Is Now Legal To Drive

This Salt Water-Powered Supercar Is Now Legal To Drive: Nanoflowcell


More than 65 percent of the earth’s surface is covered in salt water. It’s just sitting there. Why not use it to make a supercar that can go really, really fast? That’s the idea behind the Quant e-Sportslimousine.



The Quant is an electric car which, which in itself is nothing new. But the Quant has two 400-liter cells that can be filled with a special type of salt water. That electrolyte-rich water is then pumped to create electricity. Fully understanding the science requires advanced degrees that I have no interest in taking on the student loans to pursue. But suffice it to say, if this technology works, and the company recently received government approval to begin testing on roads in Europe, it could change automobile engineering as we know it.

Theoretically, the car could produce 900 horsepower and reach a top speed of 236 miles per hour with a range of 372 miles.



Even if it doesn’t work, I’d be happy just drooling over it in my driveway. The gullwing doors. The flowing wood. The enveloping grill. There is plenty that pleases the eye about the Quant.

Watch this video about the Quant, and just try not to get caught up in the potential awesomeness.
