Everyone is saying blah blah the Nissan GT-R LM NISMO LMP1 car looks like the Batmobile blah blah. Forget that. It looks like Milner's hot rod fifty years in the future.

Every so often I get into conversations with my coworkers about 'what happened to really crazy hot rods' and 'why do all new hot rods just look like old ones' and 'where is the bonkers futuristic style that they used to have?' And then we post pictures of the Orbitron or some other Ed Roth nonsense and we move on with our lives.

This. This is the future bonkers hot rod we've been waiting for. The aerodynamics are cutting edge, the powertrain is half electric running to something like portal axles at the back and twin turbo gas running to the front like Harry Miller came back from the grave.
