World's fastest solar car smashed Guinness World Record (w/ Video).
Wow, 88km/hr on just 1200 watts - what it takes to run a toaster, and the record run was done before high noon at 10:32 AM (i.e. not the max amount of solar power). Just 9 more km/hr to get just above 60 mph, i.e. 88km/hr = 54.68 mph.UNSWs Sunswift solar car has lived up to its name, smashing a Guinness World Record to become the world's fastest solar vehicle.
