That's what we need, another overpriced bit of bling for wealthy people. It will really help urban pollution and congestion when we all have one of them.

A motor for each wheel and about 2.5m of bonnet...why?
In theory that would allow you to dispense with the brake intervention stability control system but otherwise just adds complexity. It could be hub motors but I doubt it because that would be add to the unsprung mass.

The 2.5m of bonnet I suspect is because that's what they think their customers expect and maybe they want to compromise the design to add in the option of a dino burning lump?

At this level it's all about "mine's bigger than yours":D:D
