Superbus Wubbo Ockels

Superbus Wubbo Ockels

The high-speed electric Superbus built in The Netherlands is a passenger vehicle , developed under a programme at the Delft Institute of Technology, headed up by physicist and former astronaut Wubbo Ockels, who in 1985 became the first Dutch citizen to travel into space on the last successful flight of the Space Shuttle Challenger.

The sleek, 50-foot-long, six-wheel vehicle with a seating capacity for 23 people, looks more like a stretch limo version of an exotic sports car than a typical bus. It features 16 gullwing doors and a central seating position for the driver. The total power output is 408hp, which can be doubled for a minute. The 9,500 kg superbus can travel at a maximum speed of 250km/h. The 15m long superbus uses carbon fiber for both the frame and the body and also features other high-tech materials, such as Lexan Policarbonate.
