BEST and Furious: Drive Me Crazy, From Carriage to a Supercar

General description

I wake up in the morning, already late for the lectures, I find my way to my means of transportation storage, a.k.a. garage, and I am thinking: Should I choose the 500 hp roadster and come on time but also shatter my neighbour's ego and become the main global warming villain? Or should I choose to be "slightly" late and take my eco-friendly contemporarily designed electro minivan, picking up some of my friends who are also late?

Are there cars with any other alternative ecological means of high torque generation?

How nature preserving is NOS fuel injection?

What are the modern design trends in car industry?

Who should give me the BEST information? Where do they cover all this topics?

It's the Ljubljana's summer course BEST and furious!

This is the place, where all my questions will be answered and even more! I will spend a week in one of most beautiful european cities.
