Ronn Scorpion - Hydrogen Power!

This is the Ronn Scorpion, and please do forgive for being a touch sceptical, but it does sound just a little too good to be true.

According to Texas-based Ronn Motor Company, the Scorpion is an all-carbon fibre supercar that'll hit 60mph in 3.5 seconds, return over 40mpg... and burn hydrogen all at the same time.
Yes, burn hydrogen. The Scorpion, so they say, is powered by 'fracturing water molecules' from an onboard water tank to create hydrogen, which is then mixed with petrol (in about a 40/60 split) and combusted in the 3.5-litre Honda-sourced V6.

The Scorpion will be available this autumn, which I sort of doubt, but within a year hopefully we will be able to grab a vehicle like this, because of the fore coming fuel prices.

I found the designer's website earlier. My favorite is his Enigma 3, now that's hot!
