(CNN) - It sounds like an ordinary car. But it's not. In the South of France, inventor Guy Negre says he's developed a car that runs on air.
He says that no fuel is necessary to power the car that can travel at speeds close to 70-miles-per-hour. It's a whole lot of fresh air, driving an engine that Negre says is zero-polluting.
It's a radical concept that Negre says he's been developing since 1997, and he says he has more than 30 patents to protect his invention.
"The invention is in the engine. The invention is in the industrial process. ... This technology is based on a rotation system exploited by cars which use natural gas. It is used even by people who work with combustion fuel. Hydrogen under pressure systems and even the tanks of a fireman's air reserve are based on this technology," Negre says.
