ZAP Alias Electric Car Fan Video from Toledo
I do believe that this is the first video of the white ZAP Alias X PRIZE competition vehicle to air on YouTube back in May. The ZAP Alias fan who made this must have seen it driving around Toledo, Ohio immediately before the Shakedown for the Progressive Insurance Automotive X PRIZE. Speedway Tire & Auto let us use their racing shop on turn 4 of the Toledo Speedway to do some last minute fine-tuning and this must have been in one of the nearby neighborhoods.
Put yourself in their shoes. Imagine seeing a totally exotic electric car whizzing down a quiet Midwest road at night with its single, bright LED headlight, probably a lot like a UFO sighting. This person must have done what any self-respecting person would have, pulled out their video camera. The next best thing always seems to be, you guessed it, a camera phone.
Well, after months of anticipating the revelation of this car at Michigan International Speedway for Shakedown, to say that we were somewhat disappointed that someone leaked our new car was an understatement. But in retrospect, it’s all good. We have a good idea who made this video, and Sean, all we have to say to you is: nice work! Excellent song selection. Keep on doing those cool card tricks and making creative videos. Bezt!
