U.S. company building supercar that runs on liquid natural gas

Maxximus Prodigy will cost around $1 million and have a 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) sprint time of 2.1 seconds

Remember the Maxximus G-Force based on the Ultima GTR 720? The American company says it is building a $1 million-dollar supercar that will best any rival in the world and it will do so running on liquid natural gas.

It is called the Maxximus Prodigy and Maxximus says the car, once it is finished, will be able to do the 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) sprint in just 2.1 seconds and reach 100 mph (161 km/h) in 4.5 seconds. Yes, the car reaches 100 mph before most sports cars reach 100 km/h (62 mph).

Those figures beat out the likes of the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport and the McLaren F1. That sprint time even beats the Lamborghini Aventador's 2.9 second 0 to 100 km/h sprint time. Maxximus is also aiming for a top speed of 300 mph (an insane 482.80 km/h). 

The car will produce somewhere around 1,600 hp (1193 kW / 1622 PS).

More talk and no product. This is not 1998 where these reports would interest and excite. We've seen far too many talkers and con men for the past many years and this is another talker (ie. fraud). This is why I respect Porsche - they make a car first then talk about what they made and what it does. Talk is cheap and so is the value of all these lies....erm, proposals.

LNG is a great and cheap fuel. Good to see some people trying to do something besides fuel taxis with it.

Does this mean that it will be competing with the Dagger GT ? Well don't know where that company has gone now, and I guess, the biggest question would be how to put the power down to the road.
