Just in case you were starting to imagine a future filled with humming electric cars, along comes the Lotus Exige tri-fuel. The Exige uses the new multi-fuel engine being developed by Lotus and can run on gasoline, ethanol, methanol or a combination of the three. And, while the Lotus Exige promises to be greener than most sports cars, it still knows how to burn up the track. Wired reports that an Exige tri-fuel car accelerated from a standstill to 60mph (96.6km/h) in just 3.88 seconds. That is 22 hundreths of a second faster than the petrol-only Exige S.
