Thanks.

For this I was going with hydrogen, not an EV vehicle. I think personally this is a better form of alternative fuel.

Yes the Aptera, right...

I didn't want it to be the most aerodynamic thing in the whole entire universe lol. Remember it still had to have some inspiration from Auto Unions and be built by Audi.

Thanks
