This amazing electric car which was built by two German inventors, was fitted wit a small wind turbine mounted atop a bamboo pole and was also fitted with a kite (from a kite board) for extra propulsion. The EV achieved a top speed of 55mph on its journey and set a number of world records including; The first wind-powered vehicle to cross a continent. The longest distance covered by a wind powered ground-based vehicle; and the furthest distance covered by a wind powered vehicle in 36 hours.
