A Stratos is the first thing I would spend a large chunk of cash on if I win the lottery.

An electric car that carries its own generator is a bit like a sailboat that has its own fan for power.

One of those things doesn't actually work.

Boot straps are for people who can't get out of the 20th century.

I'm holding out for the all-solar Dakar, where you have to bring your own panels to power your vehicle.  I think the Aussies do some sort of thing like that.

And if you win the lottery, be sure to hire a mechanic to follow you around as you drive your Stratos and Delta.  They can collect all the bits that fall off and put them back on when you stop for fuel.

So the car still has an ICE, but instead if powering the car directly, it charges the electric motor.

Savings the planet is awesome.

I guess the days of stock Peugots winning the East Africa rally are over 😢

Hybrids are much more efficient than ICE only vehicles. This one happens to have a high rate of badassery as well.

The support trucks are so badass they eventually became their own rally class.

If I understand their numbers, this thing is slightly more efficient than a Toyota Prius engine (~200 g/kWh vs ~225 g/kWh). In an off-road beast of a vehicle. That's pretty damn good.

It ticks all my WANT boxes. I really, really WANT one. I might have to start stalking billionaires in order to get one, but WANT is all my brain is saying. Maybe someone with influence out there can get Musk to basically rip off the tech and start selling something similar? I dunno, cos all I'm hearing right now is WAAAAANT!!!!

Audi is German for Lucas. I expect it to break down 50 feet in to the race

Diesel generator that charges the battery that powers the electric motor.

Could probably complete the rally on 10 gallons of fuel.
