cars: January 2011 Archives

275x250.jpg A student-built solar-powered car has broken the world record for being the faster ever made, after reaching almost 55 mph.

The team from the University of New South Wales made the run at the HMAS Albatross navy base airstrip with their creation the Sunswift IVy solar car, last week.

Powered only powered by silicon solar cells - the batteries were removed -
professional racing Barton Mawer drove the car to a record 88 kmh (nearly 55 mph).

Students said there was more cloud cover than they would have liked during the three days of testing… they even considered changing the name to Cloudswift.
