The Next Engineering Innovation?

Today it was about 4c when I rode my Ducati to the dealers for some quick service work. The throttle response and engine smoothness was just great as the cold air packed more oxygen into the engine.....very different from a hot Summers day.

This got me thinking about Mclaren and their search for engineering improvement.

Could they use the air conditioning to cool the throttle bodies, chill the incoming air and get an increase in BHP?

Silly, maybe, but they have trick suspension and chassis so what's next?

Any thoughts?

LOL! - Or how about if they scrapped the traditional radiators, fitted a water tank and used the wasted heat from the engine & exhaust to generate steam and drive a turbine which generates electricity to run an electric booster motor / KERS battery...;)
