Cadillac Thorium Fuel Powered (Concept Car)

Thorium is a radioactive element that, if processed properly, might be used as nuclear fuel, so this is a nuclear-powered car if you will. The idea from designer Loren Kulesus is that this car could be used for 100 years without (engine) maintenance and refueling.

Liquid Fluoride Thorium (LFT) "Generation IV" Nuclear Reacters are the next great hope in nuclear power.
