On the streets its not hard to spot a hybrid or electric car. Their mostly boring and attempted futuristic design makes them stick out like a sore thumb – and to most of us car people, we just can’t understand why they don’t make them look normal instead of shouting out “I’M HERE TO SAVE THE WORLD.”

However, in the last few years, car manufacturers have been pumping out some exceptions at motor shows around the world – why can’t these be transferred to road cars? One such example is the Citroen Survolt –¬†spotted in Milan, Italy.

What makes this car special is its ability to emit ZERO emissions and sprint to 100km/h in 5 seconds and onwards to a top speed of 260km/h. Powered by two electric motors, the Survolt pushes 300HP. Not bad. Also, there’s no need to shift: it has continual acceleration driving through just the one gear.

The Survolt pushes the boundaries of what could be the future of cars. Combining both environmental friendliness and what can only be described as sexy design lines that are similar, but executed much better than the awesome Bugatti Veyron. Combine the Bugatti with some Batmobile, and you get the Survolt.

Why we don’t see more of this on our roads is beyond me. I’m sure most people would be happy to save the world if they could roll around in one of these.

The attention to detail and clean lines – amazing and breathtaking all at the same time.

Aggressive stance.

Just to gain a sense of scale – this thing is a tiny pocket rocket.

Yes it stuck out like a sore thumb, but that’s because it had a red carpet. Oh and it looks Angry all the time. But angry can be sexy too – we all knew that.

If the cars of the future keep looking like this then I’ll go out and save the world too.
