Egoista Motors' plug-in kit-car street racer is said to have a top speed of more than 180 miles per hour, which is pretty fast. The more important speed for the Italy-based start-up, though, is the rate that it can crowdfund much-needed money. At almost $1,700 a day during the past couple of months, Egoista appears more than capable to getting up to speed.

The company, which started its crowd-funding campaign December 9, has reached its $100,000 goal with one day and about $2,100 to spare, according to its Indiegogo crowd-funding page. Those funds will be put towards getting the company to move forward with its vehicle-registration process in Europe.

Beyond that, Egoista, which changed its name Predator when it started its funding campaign in December, is offering an open-wheeled kit car that folks will be able to purchase for about $20,000 in its battery-electric form (there may also be a hybrid version). Egoista says the car will be able to go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in about three seconds and will be able to go as far as 186 miles on a single charge. Check out more details on the Egoista Facebook page.
