With a recorded top speed of over 103 km/h, the Sunswift IVy is now a Guinness World Record-holder as the fastest solar vehicle on the planet.
The car was completely designed and built by students from the University of New South Wales, and only runs on an energy output of about 1200 watts -- commensurate to the energy usage of most small household appliances. If you're reading this and can't wait to get your hands a Sunswift IVy of your own, however, it sadly is just a prototype. Speedy solar cars mass-produced on any scale still remain several years away.
