    yeah that's what i thought too...but it must be compressed somehow, and it being made entirely from lego, it's probably electric motors doing the compressing. So that would make it an electric car, running on electricity, not really air.

    Legos can not support the weight of the batteries used to power electric cars. It is using 4 Orbital Engines an can reach 20mph.

    Orbital engines:
    The Sarich orbital engine is a type of internal combustion engine, invented in 1972 by Ralph Sarich, an engineer from Perth, Australia, which features rotary rather than reciprocating motion of its internal parts. It differs from the conceptually similar Wankel engine by using a shaped rotor that rolls around the interior of the engine, rather than having a trilobular rotor that spins "in place".

    The theoretical advantage is that there is no high-speed contact area with the engine walls, unlike in the Wankel engine in which edge wear is a problem. However, the combustion chambers are divided by blades which do have contact with both the walls and the rotor, and are said to have been difficult to seal due to the perpendicular intersection with the moving impeller.
    Sarich worked on the concept for a number of years without ever producing a production engine. A prototype was demonstrated, running on the bench with no load. The engine, which produces very high revs, has only one moving part. It can supposedly be powered by compressed air or steam and can be run as a pump.

    aah ok i didn't mean it ran on conventional electric car batterypacks, as they are heavy as hell, but there are other kinds of batteripacks to use.

    I'm guessing they have about a propane sized air tank in the back that just releases the air until it runs out. If that shot was a preasure guage, then it didn't take a lot to get the car moving, but I couldn't tell for sure. Here's some more pictures.
