    "Lamborghini is working with engineers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on a new all-electric supercar that won't have batteries.
    Instead, the body of the Lamborghini Terzo Millennio concept car, made from exotic carbon nanotubes, would be used as a supercapacitor. Supercapacitors store and release energy in a manner different from that employed by batteries. They have certain advantages, but also serious disadvantages..."

    Did they say TUBES TOO?!?!? oh, nanotubes... never mind.

    Starting at 25:40 is a segment on carbon nanotubes. I think the vid is about 8 years old so they can probably make more quantity now.
