I was tempted to put this under Mixed Nuts for the Arab Sheikh who actually paid $10 Million for the world’s first Superbus, designed by Dutch ex-astronaut Wubbo Ockels. The Superbus is 15 m long, and was built using only lightweight materials like carbon fiber, aluminum, polycarbonate and fiberglass. It runs exclusively on electric batteries charged by solar power. The hi-tech bus will travel the 75-mile distance between Abu Dhabi and Dubai in under 30 minutes. First seen here.
