Not Your Father's Batmobile
British design engineer Glynne Bowsher and his team have almost finished building a super-fast vehicle. The difference is that this car will be powered by a steam turbine! This ain't no Stanley Steamer. Bowsher hopes that his team, the British Steam Car Challenge, will break the steam-car speed record, set in 1906 by a Stanley Steamer driven by Fred Marriott, which reached 127.7mph (205.5 km/h), beating four gas-powered vehicles to pick up the Dewar Trophy.
