Japanese students set world record with car powered by 192 AA Batteries

Japanese students of Osaka Sangyo University made it into the Guinness Book of World Records with their fastest battery-powered car that uses only standard AA batteries.

The Oxyride racer, powered by 192 AA batteries, hit a top speed of 75 mph, while driver Takashi Sudo was behind the wheel. The car has a carbon fiber-reinforced plastic frame and weighs just 85 pounds.

The project was a joint venture between a local electrical company and the students of Osaka Sangyo University.
