Video: Dutch "Superbus" is Shockingly Fast

The rap world might have you believe that the Netherlands are only good for one thing, but the Dutch are historically known for being clever engineers, and remain on the cutting edge of many technological fronts. Now flexing muscle on (automotive) green technology, the small country has unveiled a six-wheeled, 23 passenger all-electric bus, capable of 150+ mph.

Led by Professor Wubbo Ockels (a name better than most modern-day hip-hop monikers), a team of the Netherlands' best and brightest have constructed this prototype that looks something like a Bugatti Veyron on male enhancement pills. Expected to make its official debut at a Dubai tradeshow this May, it probably won't catch on, but it's a lot cooler than any Greyhound.
