And they say electric cars don't go fast. A group of BYU engineering students have built an electric streamliner that peaked at speeds of 175 mph. With that quiet electric motor I'll bet the "whoosh" it makes is gorgeous.
All BYU student Nicholas Homer wanted was to enjoy life's simple pleasures: a warm day, a cold beer, a motorized couch to amble around campus in. But some things are just too beautiful for this world.
