Ferrari proves green technology doesn't have to be bland

World-renown for their gas-guzzling exotic beauties, Ferrari might be one of the last manufacturers you’d think would dabble in alternative-fuel technologies. But even the Italian stallions have apparently embraced the need to be more eco-responsible. Meet the ‘Mille Chili’- Mille referring to the fact that the tiny roadster weighs less than 1,000kg… Chili, well the gas/electric hybrid built almost completely from carbon fiber is just one hot little number. In addition to the car’s fueling milestone, dashboard controls have been completely eliminated, favoring steering-wheel controls for all driving functions.

Though Ferrari says they will not build the Chili, it’s a good indication of future technologies that might be incorporated into production models… get ready for some heat!
