    Well, Toro, we now know what you have been up to.

    Official EPA mileage rating of 207.5 MPGe for most efficient street legal full sized sedan in the world

    Illumati Motor Works Seven car officially received an EPA mileage rating of 207.5 MPGe, based on the official EPA 74 test cycle used for determining mileage for electric and hybrid vehicles like the Chevy Volt and Nissan Leaf, during its recently completed testing at the Chrysler Proving Grounds in Chelsea Michigan.

    The car came in second to the team Edison2 in the Progressive Automotive X-Prize competition last summer. The car had a clutch problem during the X-Prize competition. The Illuminati team has continued to work on their vehicle. The Edison2 Very Light Car, winner of the competition last summer achieved just 102.5 MPGe. The Nissan Leaf, now commercially available, gets just 99 MPGe according to the EPA rating.

    Illuminati Motor Works (IMW) “Seven” is a four seat battery electric vehicle (BEV) that was constructed from scratch specifically for the Progressive Automotive X Prize. The steel frame and foam/fiberglass body were constructed by hand

    Final Stats:

    207.5 MPGe
    160.42 Wh/mile
    Road Load Coefficient A: 12.18
    Road Load Coefficient B: 0.0853
    Road Load Coefficient C: 0.00976
    Vehicle Weight = 2900 lbs.

    This proves Seven to be the most efficient, street legal full size sedan in the world.
    ...............................................................................................
    Approximately $110,000 in parts and materials for the prototype.
    It can go from 0-60 mph (26.82 m/s) in eight seconds, has a range of 200 miles (322 kilometers) and can reach speeds up to 130 miles (209 kilometers) per hour

    The oil companies pissed us off when they wouldn't hand over the Iraqi oil fields to us like they promised after we engineered the invasion, so this is their payback!
