I read about this car in PC Magazine's digitial subscription and then went to their site. This is definitely one cool car: all electric-. 0-60 in 4 seconds. 250 Miles per charge, 1 penny per mile of operating costs...

When I first saw the articles about CSI being advertised on egg shells, I cringed. It sounded like another place for companies to dump big bucks for unsitely ads that would be ignored by everyone except for the people who it ticked off.
It's is still a stretch, but the twist descirbed in this article puts a new light on it. The twist is that the egg shell advertising is printed in an ink, that only shows up when the egg is boiled and is properly cooked. It still feels like a stretch to me, but it is clever and for the kitchen challenged a somewhat useful service.
These cars are not available in America, but they are a far cry from the common image of the smelly, hard to start diesel cars of the 1970's.
