Interesting engine concept - is that probably KITT's engine

I found an interesting article about a Thorium fuel concept car, which uses a Thorium beta decay source, a laser, a water cycle, steam and a micro turbine. Thorium is a radioactive element, but a much safer one compared to other elements.

While it would be great to not have to go to a smelly gas station,if I see that car as the new kitt body I'm not seeing the movie.I can't even tell how you enter the car.

Let's all hope that they can design the engine to work in modern cars, I don't know about others, but I love this generation of cars (muscle)
