AC Cars concept

The conceptual drawing above is most of what we know about the car's look. Alan Lubinsky, Chairman of AC Cars, however, released more information in a press statement. It's tantalizing, to say the least.

The chassis of the car is a magnesium base and the whole thing weighs only 150 pounds. What's more, AC Cars has patented the rights to this magnesium alloy material and technology and believes it could revolutionize the vehicle manufacturing process.

The electric drive train for this concept is being developed by Dr. Moshe Miller, who worked with GM's electrics for over two decades, and an ex-Lotus engineer (John Owen) and designer Ron Saunders are liaisons with ALubin for the rest.

And so ...

Interesting, to say the least.
