If you are an ardent lover of wacky cars and appreciate anything and everything that’s not commonly used in the making of a vehicle, then Shell Eco-Marathon is a right place for you to visit. All the eerie cars made of material that perhaps won’t be used in day to day cars ever, the competition represents the cars that are different, really different.
The one we are introducing you with is created by a team of students at Aston University in Birmingham and is built using cardboard and plywood. Like the uncommon material used, it’s powered by explosive hydrogen. Entered into the urban concept category, the unusual vehicle is propelled by a nexa ballard hydrogen fuel cell.
In an effort to build an eco friendly car through and through, the team of students designed its chassis out of cardboard and plywood and its body panels are made of bio-resin infused fiber. As a result, this weird yet amazing looking car gets first position against the 200 odd entries in the competition submitted by 24 universities. Further, the tire covers of the car are made from bio-resin, infused with hessian fibers, thus enabling the entire structure collapsible for easy delivery.
