When you think of a 1,600-horsepower V8 supercar, “green” isn’t the first word that comes to mind. But designer Marlon Kirby and car builder David B. McMahan are aiming to change all that with their newest street-legal supercar offering, the Maxximus LNG 2000. The car has the looks of a supercar, but it runs on compressed natural gas and liquid natural gas to create the fastest green car on the market today.

The Maxximus LNG 2000 is the second generation of the company’s original supercar, the G-Force, which claims to be “the world’s fastest street-legal supercar” with none of the green pretentions of the LNG 2000. Also in the works is the Prodigy, another LNG vehicle for the consumer market said to have a 2000-horsepower engine and a million-dollar price tag. The design of the LNG 2000 is still being finalized, so for now we only have the one photo above to admire, plus a gallery of the original G-Force, which has been making the promotional rounds with 2010 Playmate of the Year Hope Dworaczyk.

    Now about a natural gas powered pickup truck. I just saw a Dodge Ram on a clickable advertisement on Inhabitats own website. Do they control who places advertisements on their site? Do they even bother to check. I’ve seen Dodge Chargers, Ford Explorers, BMW’s, even an Audi Q7 with it’s 493 hp V12 engine.
