Lotus Engineering to Help Obvio Build Tribrid Sports Car

Brazil's Obvio is reportedly working on new "tribrid" cars. They're called that because they'll try anything for fuel — gasoline, bioethanol, natural gas, electricity, rainwater, caipirinhas, a thong-powered windup propeller, and large hats outfitted with exotic fruits. Of course, only variations of the first four will likely power on the lightweight, mid-engined sports cars — dubbed 828 and 012 — which will be created in partnership with Lotus Engineering. They'll probably cost upward of $50,000 if they come to the states, as the company's CEO once said is a possibility. If they do make it stateside, we'll, of course, have to substitute rum for Cacha a in the caipirinhas.
