Toyota shows off by making regenerative breakfast
Rather than using the grunt to spin tires, the team recently showed what was possible by channeling the current into making eggs, toast, and coffee for 171 people. The result was quite... electrifying.
It's fascinating to see just how much energy a modern LMP1 car can actually recuperate, and Porsche is regenerating even more at eight megajoules. The visuals in this clip look fantastic, although there's likely a little trickery going on here. The TS040 might be a hybrid, but standing that close to the V8 at full chat would likely leave folks with their ears ringing. You can watch Toyota's stunt in the clip above, and the one below provides some additional background on the tech from driver Kazuki Nakajima.
