Have you heard of Casey Butch? Putsch calls himself an automobile designer, engineer, philanthropist, craftsman, artist, and racing driver. He’s the founder and CEO of Genius Garage Racing, Aerospace, and Design Programs, and he has a YouTube channel called Casey Putsch.
One of his coolest designs is the Omega, which was built from scratch into a highly efficient, aerodynamic, recyclable concept car aimed at more than 100 mpg. Ambitious, yes, but Butch explains how and why.
Casey Butch has a point to prove
Putsch has a wagon loaded with money, and he has the most expensive cars in his garage, including Ferraris, Lambos and Lykan Hypersport. But his dream was to build a car that could be recycled, could be fuel efficient, and yet went fast. As in, a fast Dodge Viper, it beats the crazy V10 by running 0-60 mph in under 4 seconds.
In terms of specs, everything is kept under wraps about the Omega, but we know it has a Volkswagen Beetle’s 2.0-liter TDI diesel, with a supercharger.
In the video, Putsch talks about how cars like the Viper and Corvette are a body mounted atop a steel chassis, and how the Lamborghini is made entirely of aluminum, while the Porsche is a ridiculous design with all kinds of drag inside.
With soaring oil prices, an Omega may become a necessity
Putsch went on to say he made the Omega because it was in the manufacturing stage, and it was handcrafted. He chose a diesel because it’s more flexible, and also mentioned that when they were taking this car outside for a spin, they were only doing some burnout when the car “cracked at 80 mpg”.
Putsch ended up putting the car on the shelf because no one seemed to care much about it. But given the current European crisis, he brought it up again to tell people that you don’t need a lot of oil to run a car, and that high fuel prices shouldn’t bother you too much.
It’s certainly an interesting and somewhat beautiful concept, and Putsch feels it has a lot of potential. After all, low environmental impact, low energy, mass production, high efficiency, and recyclable vehicle is definitely a need today.
YouTube followers are sure to love it, as one of them said, “I think this car is probably my favorite of all the cars you showed on your channel. I love the concept and purpose behind it, as well as the building techniques used. I look forward to seeing more of the Omega Carr!”
