With a team from India’s Manipal Institute of Technology, Paul has created the company Mean Metal Motors (MMM), and in addition to several planned concepts, one physical car planned for debut at the 2016 Paris Auto Show.
The M-Zero will be made from a new material called “carbo-flax,” which is claimed to be stronger than carbon fiber, but at a tenth the cost. The plan is to sell this material to Indian satellite companies in order to fund the M-Zero.
If all goes according to plan, the M-Zero will cost $125,000 to $200,000. We can’t wait to see if this comes to fruition, and if a car will be ready for the Paris Auto Show, in October of 2016.
