Kit Car Designer Takes on Hybrids

Famed custom vehicle designer Robert Q. Riley has worked on everything from bikes to kit cars to hovercraft to submarines. Now's he's drawing up plans for a high-performance, diesel-electric hybrid. A spec image (pictured) features a drawn-to-scale victim of Auric Goldfinger, though it's doubtful the figure in any way represents Riley's target market. Do-it-yourselfers can watch for the blueprints, coming soon.
