|Summary:|| "An epic tale of invention, in which ordinary people's lives are changed forever by a quest to engineer a radically new kind of car. In 2007, science-fiction enthusiast Peter Diamandis announced he would give $10 million to anyone who could build a safe, mass-producible car that traveled 100 miles on the energy equivalent of a gallon of gas. The challenge attracted more than 300 teams from all over the world, including dozens of amateurs. This book follows four teams from the build stage to the final race and beyond."-- Provided by publisher.
