The first car to include anti-lock brakes was the 1966
Jensen FF which came equipped with the Dunlop Maxaret anti-
lock braking system (originally developed for use on
aircraft). Although crude by today's standards (and
sometimes unreliable), the Jensen FF's anti-skid system was
a huge technological breakthrough at the time.

In 1999, the two-door Honda Insight became the first
commercially available hybrid gasoline-electric car in the
United States. The Insight won numerous awards (including
International Engine of the Year) and earned EPA mileage
ratings of 61 mpg in the city and 70 mpg on the highway,
making it the world's most fuel-efficient car.

The first Chevrolet Corvette rolled off the production line
on June 30, 1953, at the GM plant in Flint, Michigan. Only
300 Corvettes were built that year (each of them by hand),
making this the rarest Corvette. Each fiberglass-bodied
two-seater was white with a red interior and a black canvas
top.
