THE HIPSTER BARISTAS WET DREAM: COFFEE POWERED CAR

03.08.10 9 years ago 4 Comments

I’ve always thought that a car with a gas tank you could directly crap into, and power the vehicle with, was a great idea; none of this bio-engineering stuff those fancy scientists try to pollute our minds with, I’m talking a straight butt-to-engine cohesiveness. My chemistry teacher never fully supported me in high school, often relaying the humble advice, “You know, I just really need you to keep your pants on in my class, okay?” Haha, that guy just didn’t get it. Anyway, my crap-powered concept car is still in the garage, but at least British scientists are developing other brown things to fuel vehicles. In this case: ground coffee.

The converted 1988 Volkswagen Scirocco was built by BBC1 television show Bang Goes the Theory, to serve as a reminder that alternate bio-fuel resources could be used to power vehicles. In the next several weeks, *swallows hard and tries to emotionally prepare for the use of the internet’s latest pun* the Car-puccino will make a 210 mile trek from Manchester to London. The car can travel a depressing an impressive 1.4 miles per pound of coffee (as oppose to drinking an entire pound of coffee, tripping balls and then running full speed to your friend’s house), but does need to pull over every 60 miles in order to clean the coffee filter (cute, right).

So there you have it: not the cure to cancer or the answer to impotence, but a great waste of time, to say the least. A novel idea and an actually functional way to make your 1988 Volkswagen Scirocco look less like a

Pu–y Wagon (SFW) and more like a DeLorean. Sexy ladies everywhere, you’ve been warned.
