Bienville Studios "Magnolia Special" CNG Powered Concept Car

Bienville Studios Magnolia Special
Bienville Studios is a small design company in the French Quarter in New Orleans. They've created this compressed natural gas (CNG) powered open cockpit, custom roadster, the Magnolia Special. She was designed to demonstrate the promise of CNG as a practical automobile fuel.

From the start of the project, lead designer J.T. Nesbitt intended to drive her coast-to-coast on a cannonball run to prove that she was more than just a beautiful piece of garage jewelry. Last November he drove her from New York to Los Angeles in 89 hours, averaging 30 to 35mpg.

 FYI: Nesbitt designed the famous Confederate Motorcycle Company's Wraith motorcycle.
