Another "mongel" mobile here

Looks a bit like the TT.

http://www.physorg.com/printnews.php?newsid=8132

A Brazilian-made car that burns both gasoline and alcohol processed
from corn had its unveiling here ahead of the first shipment of
thousands of vehicles to the United States.

The governor of Rio de Janeiro state, Rosinha Matheus de Garotinho,
was on hand Friday for a first peak at the prototype made by Brazil's
Obvio in partnership with US company ZAP, which stands for Zero Air
Pollution.

With gasoline prices high, the flex-fuel car uses what has already
become a popular technology in South America's largest market.

Its first production phase will see 17,000 cars shipped in 2006.

But Obvio president Rivardo Machado said ZAP "already has purchased
50,000 units in advance."

Obvio has a 700-million-dollar contract with ZAP which is looking to
distribute in Europe and Asia as well.
