Detroit Electric has revealed its striking concept sports car design called SP:01. It features pure electric 2-seater sports car, the company claims that this will be the world’s fastest production electric sports car in 2015. It was revealed as a prototype at 2013 Shanghai Motor Show, the new design now has subtle update to further improve the car’s aerodynamic performance.
One of striking element that attracts people’s attention is the bold new fastback configuration, it replaces the prototype’s flying buttresses on either side of the rear window. Using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), the exterior body is optimized to create better airflow, thus, reducing turbulence for better performance and stability. That large sculptural rear wing as well as an under-body diffuser have been designed to reduce lift and improve downforce at higher speeds. The front air intake and outlet ducts on the bonnet are reshaped to provide better airflow to the HVAC system.

This car is powered by battery packs which is housed in protective composite casing as part as the vehicle’s structure. It improves SP:01’s torsional rigidity and provides an extremely robust barrier that protects those batteries from punctures in the event of accident. The high power motor is able to propel the car to an impressive 155mph or 249 km/h top speed, from 0 to 60mph time in just 3.7 seconds.
Humor is one of the best and healthiest ways for people to cope with difficult situations, and there might not be anyone with a better understanding of this than active soldiers, many of whom have seen horrors that most of us cannot imagine. This list is for those brilliant troops all over the world who have used humor to lighten their loads.
If you have any photos of soldiers who have goofed off like any of these soldiers have, we’d love to see your photos in our list! And don’t forget to upvote your favorites, either!
