Dutch ‘Superbus’ is Super, Bus


We reported earlier this week on the New York man who beat an M15 bus crosstown while riding a big wheel. It looks like he’s finally met his match; The Huffington Post reports that awesomely named Dutch astronaut Wubbo Ockels has dreamed up a 23-person, 155 MPH electric “superbus.” Sure, only old people take the bus, but those geezers are going to fly!

The 13 million euro carbon fiber superbus will make its debut at a trade fair in Dubai next month because people in Dubai love stupid, fast shit.

It’s Saturday! Get on the superbus and don’t pull the stop cord until you get to Party Town, USA!
