Coffee-Powered World Record Car

28 Sep

An unusual but innovative idea for a world land speed record attempt, Engineer Martin Bacon from County Durham and his team have created a car that runs on the waste gasses produced by coffee beans.

The goal of Martin’s team is to beat the current land speed record for vehicles that run on gas produced by organic waste. So far they have managed to reach 66.5mph on the 14th of September, but their ultimate goal is to beat 80mph.
