Dubai-based inventor creates a do-it-yourself, solar-powered car

Gulf News

Say hello to perhaps the least aerodynamic, solar-powered car in the world. With a top speed of about 30 mph and a total length approaching 20 feet, the car is powered by batteries, which are charged by four 170-watt solar panels. Despite being a two-seater, its top speed is less than half that of the solar-powered golf carts we recently saw in Florida.

The car, built in Dubai, has no air conditioning, just "like a Formula 1 car," according to its designer, Bin Saif. We're not sure that the parallel is warranted.
