Default Inferno Supercar from Mexico: 1400 BHP, made of stretchable metal

Check this out folks! A futuristic car named 'Inferno Exotic Car' delivering 1400bhp 'Metal Foam' will be used to build this car - seems like a first. Designed by Antonio Ferraioli. More details available on the website below

Ugly as hell. Seems like a car from a comic book. I don't see a bright future for this supercar, and certainly don't believe the claimed specs / performance.

The big news appears to be:

Quote:
That melty body is made out of a revolutionary zinc-aluminum-silver alloy known as ‘metal foam’, a newfangled stretchable material with the strength of armour.

We’re told this metal foam can stretch to 100 times its original size, allowing it to absorb impacts without affecting its basic physical properties. So it’s indestructible, effectively. Sounds a lot like Flubber, no?

An alloy that can stretch to 100 times its length and still retain the elasticity!
This looks like science fiction ...

Very Furai.
But where that looked smolderingly angry, this looks like bad anime.

I think this is a funding stage activity all in all.
