As fuel, the development team used a low-level radioactive metal thorium (Thorium (Th)). For the first time the idea of using this element voiced American inventor Lawrence Kulesus in 2009 at an exhibition of cars Chicago Auto Show. Well, the engineers at Laser Power Systems, led by inventor Charles Stevenson could not only develop the concept of a nuclear engine, but also successfully make it happen. The new concept called Cadillac World Thorium Fuel (Cadillac WTF).
Th first started using during the Second World War, as it is considered the safest substance of other radioactive elements. According to scientists, developers, gram of thorium successfully replaced about 30 thousand liters of conventional fuels. Well, and 8 grams of full owner of the car is enough for a lifetime. In addition, released during the reaction is enough excess energy to charge and the battery, and other devices.
Cadillac WTF is able to turn upside down the idea of today's cars. The task of non-standard solutions that have found a place in the development kotsept-car, is to combat environmental damage. Modern cars do not only have a short period of service, but also have a negative impact on the environment during production, use and disposal. While the novelty of the Cadillac is designed to operate without refueling and repairs for a century.
All systems are also different from the concept of traditional counterparts. Thorium energy as efficiently operate all domestic programs, acting similar to the human nervous system. The main parts of the vehicle have a safety net function in case of unforeseen damage to Cadillac WTF continued full operation without repair.
The concept car has 24 wheels, 6 on each side. Each of them is fairly narrow and has a built induction motor. These wheels will need to be adjusted every five years, without the need for replacement.
Cadillac WTF construction itself is very flexible and can transform into a car like the muscles, making intuitive control. For example, the angle of the wheels varies depending on the road surface. Reactor car for safety placed in the back of kotsept-car.
If thorium positively show itself as a source of energy, as a concept car becomes a reality, the world leaders in the field of energy could be Australia and India. On the territory of these countries are about 30% of deposits of this metal from all fields of the planet.
