Toyota Alessandro Volta
Though it appeared in 2004, it could have been beamed straight from the mid 90s. The Alessandro Volta was the work of Toyota and Giugiaro, and named after the Italian physicist who invented the battery. It featured a 3.3-litre V6, two electric motors, four-wheel-drive and 402bhp. 0-62mph? Four seconds. Top speed was 155mph. Didn't reach production, as you might have spotted.
