10,000 was the original answer given... that is equal to roughly 13 horsepower... the average nonelectric car has at least 100...i don't want to get rid of that answer but just pointing out my suspicions ... its probably not right unless their talking about a smart-car with no weight other than a skinny passenger with all the lights and AC turned off...(while going down a hill)... if someone would like to give a more realistic number or possibly give proof that 10,000 is not a lie...that would be great =)
