Car of Magnetic Proportions

You’ve got the need for the speed in the streets. You’ve got to go faster than your crappy metal-on-metal jalopy can take you. Faster, harder, stronger! Check out the Nissan-Motivity 400C concept by Tryi Yeh. The 400C has the Maglev engine system in each tire, making it quite floaty and speedy. The 400C has a wild, new triangle shape that reduces drag, while the driver seat controls retain their classic build (although, as you’ll see, you still might have a time getting used to the seat!)

A little more info on the Maglev concept:

The use of the physical properties of magnetic fields generated by superconducting magnets to cause an object (as a vehicle) to float above a solid surface.

- Merriam Webster Dictionary

This method has the potential to be faster, quieter and smoother than wheeled mass transit systems. The technology has the potential to exceed 4,000 mph (6,400 km/h) if deployed in an evacuated tunnel.

- Wikipedia

The above speed(s) are, of course, assuming you’re rocking a bullet train on the magnetic-levitation tracks. With a car using maglev wheels, the benefit is much, much less. But a benefit nonetheless. Rock them wheels!
