Memminger............This time they’ve taken things a bit further, re-imagining a Super Beetle as a mid-engined roadster, and it’s pretty fantastic.

GM had some electric drivetrain and advanced aerodynamic expertise from their EV-1 electric car project, and they put all of that to use — and much more — in making the Precept. The Precept was a hybrid, but not exactly in the same manner like the fairly common combustion engine/electric hybrids we have today: the Precept was what’s known as a parallel hybrid where, unlike a Prius or something, there’s actually two (actually, sort of two-and-a-half) totally separate and distinct drivetrains, one diesel, one electric, in the car.

^^^^Reminds me as a kid - going to Budd's Creek Maryland drag races late 60's - that on some of the top pro cars they would throw down gas just out of the water box, the car would spin the tires, roll into the gas then a crew member would light it.

The crowd would go nuts! As you can imagine, the practice didn't last too long.

The nighttime match races used to do this a lot to get the crowd worked up. Those crappy drag strips barley had enough lights to see the cars so this would really light the place up.
