UK hacked car takes speed record off Americans. Answered

Just over a year ago, the BBC had a coffee-powered car built, along the lines of this popular instructable.

Now, that same car has been used to set a new speed record for a gasification-powered car, previously set at 47mph by Beaver Energy, using a car run on gasified wood-chips.

With his car running coffee grounds, engineer Martin Bacon and his team from County Durham. pushed the record up to 65mph, an official Guinness Record, although it falls short of the team's goal of 80mph.

The BBC article is here
, but if you're outside the UK, and can't watch the video, the same video is below, but lacks the voices.
