Wind-powered Formula AE super sports car
Rory Handel and Maxx Bricklinas, Beverly Hills, California, USA, are working on a RORMaxx Formula AE super sports car with zero emissions and drawing its energy from the wind. The first prototype may roll out in August.
The Formula AE will be able to accelerate from 0-60mph in less than 4 seconds and drive for up to 200 miles once the batteries are fully charged. The batteries can be recharged in 90 minutes.
The car will use a solar-powered battery to get it moving but will then use the airflow passing over the vehicle to power a turbine. There are four air intakes located on the vehicle to draw airflow towards the turbine.
Generated electricity is stored in a series of ultra-capacitors and is combined with energy also stored in a battery that is charged by solar panels located on the roof of the car.
The wheels are powered by an electric motor rated at 284hp (212kW). To boost performance, the car’s weight has been kept to the barest minimum. The chassis is constructed from lightweight aluminum, while the body will be a steel mono-coque shell.
The car is expected to cost around 100,000 pounds when it hits the market.
A major fuel and commodities corporation that wishes to remain anonymous funded this RORMaxx Formula AE super sports car.
