Developed in Holland by an astronaut and a former Formula One aerodynamics expert, the new super bus is an electric vehicle that costs 7million, or about $10,000,000

49ft long, 8ft wide, and 5.5ft high, and is made pf lightweight materials including aluminum, carbon fiber, fiberglass, and polycarbonate. It offers interior room for 23 passengers and can hit an impressive top speed of 155 mph.

Almost looks like a stretched land speed record car with a bunch of seats added in the middle. Take it to the salt flats!

Looks stupid lol for 7million I could probably make something better.

EDIT: I just noticed the headlights. Are they from a Koenigjfhaosdfiaghuishfvuijhoihzuihoerwtgpg CCX? They do look like it.

Impressive numbers but I want it to hit the 155mph with 23 passengers

I'm curious if they even sold one of this bus.

23 people weigh less than some pickup loads with a trailer.

23x200 = 2300lbs. At 155MPH.... I'd say to long to matter anyways. By the time you realize you need to slam the breaks, you gonna die.
