Coffee Powered Car Sets Record

 

The BBC has reported that a coffee powered car was driven at 66 mph and has set a land record.The car, Carpaccino, was at Elvington Airfield near York when driver Martin Bacon hit the record speed.

The vehicle runs off of a process called gasification, which burns dried pellets of coffee grounds. The gas that results in the reaction, fuels the vehicle. According to Bacon, the exhaust smells like a “house fire” not coffee. The record has yet to be verified by Guinness World Records.
