The Superbus has Gull-wing Doors

Posted in EcoLust, Electric Cars, Environment by Dustin Driver | April 2nd, 2010 | 1 Response |

Sixteen gull-wing doors that fan out like the wings of some horrible insectoid beast. And it’s shaped like a giant liver fluke. The Superbus was spawned at the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. It carries 23. It’s electric. It’s made of carbon fiber. It can go 150 miles an hour. And it’s real—they’ve tested a rolling chassis and plan to have a fully operational Superbus in the coming months. They’ve also come up with an SMS/Internet-based door-to-door on-demand system. Make a request and the Superbus will come for you, picking up other passengers with similar destinations along the way. Then it’ll blast out of the city onto purpose-built “smart highways” where it’ll drive itself at 150 mph. Or that’s the idea, anyway. And again, this thing is real. Delft University of Technology hopes to market the Superbus worldwide.
