Jenatzy "The Never Satisfied"

This cigar-shaped car was the first to go over 100 kilometers per hour. Plus, it's electric!

The car, "La Jamais Contente", was named after the racer's mother-in-law. Any advantages from the light weight and aerodynamic body are canceled out by the exposed chassis and driver.

More details here. Pictures below are of a replica.
