I’m not sure if this is a car or a piece of abstract artwork designed to resemble a monkey’s head. The vehicle is called the Venturi, which is a bit of an ironic name, as I will get to in a bit. This vehicle gets power from solar panels and even a wind turbine.

Oddly, the name Venturi gives me the chuckles. For you less geeky types, a venturi is what you call a device that creates suction by passing high flow gas through a small orifice inside of a tube open on the end or middle, thereby creation suction and drawing in air from outside of the venturi.Therefore, one could assume by the name of the vehicle that it sucks so bad it pulls passersby into its suckdom. If you want to buy, one you had better be secure in your geekdom, and have an extra $31,500 to spend on a car that can only go 14 miles per day on wind or solar charge. Thankfully, you can plug it into the outlet as well. Do you think that eco nuts that spend this sort of cash on electric cars ever stop to think how the electricity they use is made?
