Do you have a Fetish? You'll want this one...
A Venturi Fetish, a 245hp, electric powered sports car.



French auto maker Venturi should get a healthy round of applause when it shows off its 245-horsepower "Fetish" sports car in January. Not because it's super-powerful - although it's quick enough, with a 4.3-second 0-to-60 time - but because it's the world's first production sports car to be powered by electricity.

Of course, when it hits the roads early next year it'll set you back almost half-a-mil, not to mention the trouble you'll go through to find a place to charge it all the time. If you can swing the purchase price, though, I bet you'll manage fine. Plus the quick-charge system in the Fetish is fast; 10 minutes on the plug nets 16km worth of drive time.

6. Yes, it is sexy
But I'd have to work for over 40 years to even hope to save enough money to buy one at today's price. By then I'd be too old to enjoy it.

I'll stick with my Saturn, thank you very much.

7. this one gets my blood & juices boiling.........
New show on Discovery, Top Gear had a race between the car and the 200mph high speed train from England to Monte Carlo...

The car averaged 19mpg and was being flogged across England & France.
