Dubai, the capital of United Arab Emirates bought a Super Bus recently. The world’s first Super bus was made of the state-of-the art materials and has the capacity to convey 23 passengers in a trip. It runs on a top speed of 155 miles per hour or 250 kilometers per hour. Super bus was developed in Holland by Wubbo Ockels who eventually is the first Dutch astronaut. He is an engineering professor at the Delft University of Technology. Other members of the team that developed the Super bus were Antonia Terzi of Formula One aerodynamics expert and Joris Melkert who also contributed to the development of the fastest Solar cars in the world.

Super bus is a 50-foot-long and runs on rechargeable batteries and regenerative braking which produces no water. The “Supertrack” which is the vehicles radar system detects obstacles on the road up to 1,000 feet ahead and steers around them. Passengers will be able to enjoy comfort equal to that of a luxury limousine or private jet. The Super bus has eight gull wing-style doors on each side to allow for a swift exit. The midnight-blue, electric-powered vehicles cost seven million British Pounds (N1.75Billion)!
The vehicle was flown to the United Arab Emirates on Monday. Super bus will be used by a Sheikh in Dubai. This vehicle will definitely increase the influx of visitors to the Arab nation as people from all over the world want to have a glimpse of the vehicle which is the first of its kind in the world.
