Mark Christensen had a simple dream—to create a 600-horsepower suicide machine able to accelerate from zero to sixty in less time than it takes to read this sentence. When a friend offers him $100,000 to realize that dream, Christensen enlists Nick Pugh, a talented young designer who shows him some stunning sketches of the Xeno I. Inspired, the author assembles a best of the best team of engineers, mechanics and fabricators.
But the dream becomes grander after Pugh develops an incredibly simple method for cars to triple their driving range. Suddenly nothing seems impossible. That is, until the author discovers that $100,000 won’t even pay for the hubcaps.
Super Car is a window into 21st century technology and cutting edge design at its most relevant and bizarre-a story that sizzles like American Graffiti on acid. An epic odyssey about craft, cars, ego and ambition, it's a classic tale of chasing down the American dream.
