It’s nice to see that solar technology is moving forward and the students over at the University of New South Wales have come up with the Sunswift IVy, a solar-powered vehicle that has claimed the Guinness World Record for the world’s fastest solar-powered vehicle, thanks to its top speed of 88.738kph. The record-breaking attempt was done at the HMAS Albatross navy base airstrip in Nowra, Australia, beating the previous record of 78kph that was set by the GM Sunraycer back in 1987.
