The thorium-turbine powered car.
Heat energy from the thorium – a weakly radioactive element (the radioactivity could be blocked with nothing but aluminum foil) that is estimated to be three to four times more naturally abundant than uranium and which contains 20 million times the energy as an equivalent lump of coal – is used to generate steam, which is then used to power a small turbine, which provides the motive force.
