- Engine: Some cars will use light-powered motors. Photons strike a paddle-wheel-like molecule in the chassis, creating a reaction that turns the wheels.
- Suspension: The wheels are made of carbon spheres known as buckyballs. Hydrocarbon axles rotate perpendicular to the ground so the wheels can ride over bumps.
- Trunk space: The truck model will include a molecule in its center that acts as a cargo bed to transport other molecules.
- Road: A heated gold surface enables the carbon wheels to rotate freely.
