The Daily Express says that the car, which is at present being built, will have a pear-shaped glass body 23 feet long and 15 feet high. Lieutenant Morgan will drive on a seat inside the wheel, which will revolve on oil bearings. The jetmotor will be on a similar principle to the V 2 rocket with liquid gases i for fuel.
