Baby You Can Drive My Car
Written by Bwog Staff
Bwog noticed a circle of six or so boys standing around a homemade car, which is currently parked on Low plaza. The car is the project of the Columbia Society of Automotive Engineers who will compete in a major race next week in Detroit against 140 other teams.
Members of the SAE stood proudly around their creation and bragged to Bwog that the car goes from 0-60 in 3.5 seconds and can reach a speed of 120 mph. “Though you wouldn’t want to drive it that fast,” one SAEer warned. The car’s not street legal, but the team half-seriously speculated that maybe some fenders and a bumper or two would do the trick.
You can watch videos (thanks to a handy Helmet Cam) of the SAE taking it out for a test drive here and after the jump
