Flashing Russian Car

Marussia, the innovative Russian Sports Car sounds interesting. A bit of an eco-friendly car that uses nanotechnology.


Russia’s automobile manufacturers have found a niche that might help to overcome their foreign competitors: huge investments into the metal body once made by major companies, which now prevent them from utilising newer predominantly non-metal bodies. The Marussia project will now attempt to capitalise on this, by omitting the usage of wing spars, making exchangeable bodies, and developing an electric engine, but experts are skeptical.

The bit about nanotech is way at the bottom of this article. Was wondering why it was in the title of that article.
