London – A small team of British engineers has defined entrepreneurship in the list of Guinness World Records, after breaking the speed record on land through the coffee-powered cars.
The car, dubbed the Car Coffee Mk2 reach a top speed of 77.5 mph (124.7km / h) and an average speed of 66.5 mph (107.0km / h) which was officially claimed as the world record for running vehicles with fuel from organic waste.
The previous record was held by a team of U.S. origin through Beaver XR7, a strength-based timber with a top speed of 47.7 mph (76.8km / h).
Coffee-based Car Mk2 Rover SD1 with a straight six-cylinder engine. The team then equip the car with a gasifier that is designed to produce maximum power with target speeds as high as possible.
The gasification system burns the coffee at temperatures above 700 degrees Celsius and produce a synthesis gas consisting of methane monoxide, hydrogen and carbon, so that the internal combustion engine capable of powering a car.
The team also explain some of the clean gas is compressed to 150 psi and injected directly into the manifold to reach top speed.
The interior is completely stripped, to reduce the approximately 250kg deadweight of the cabin.
The cooling system consists of the intercooler 12 volts with two fans installed, so the car has a number of collection points to drain moisture.
Meanwhile, Coffee Car Mk1 also holds the Guinness World Record as to coffee-powered car with the longest trip. Based Volkswagen Scirocco capable of driving as far as 337 miles from London to Manchester is supported by the coffee granules.
Guinness Party explained that the fuel from the “Car-puccino” consumption can reach 56 miles per single espresso.
The inventor Jem Stansfield, who also hosted the BBC got the initial idea to design a car that can run using a variety of waste products, after seeing a large number of grains of coffee are used and produced a number of coffee shops
