New Superbus:- Dubai (Video Included)

A bus like you have never seen before. $18 Million Dollars, and for that you have a bus that actually looks like an over sized limousine that measures 15m or 49.21 feet, that can reach speeds of up to 250km/h or 155 mph. The superbus has 12 gull-wing doors and seats 23 passengers in luxury. It is made from super-light carbon fibre materials and is powered by an electric motor backed up by lithium polymer batteries.

Air bags are fitted for each passenger as well as television and internet access. The superbus has a turning circle of 10 meters or 32 feet. The two pairs of rear wheels turn independently, thereby reducing its turning radius. It was on show at the World Exhibition of the international Association of Public Transport in Dubai. Now that type of bus you wouldn’t mind waiting for to go to work on. 🙂

There is an article about the superbus in Mail Online.

    Reminds you of a longer version of the Batmobile. Great idea, one that signifies twenty-first century technology.

      Hi Mal,
      You are spot on, I think it’s great, although the speeds it reaches wouldn’t be much good for our neck of the woods, but it is magnificent, you wouldn’t mind hoping on public transport like that.

    I will not rant! Instead, I’ll quote my neighbour who saud, in a masterpiece of understatement:

    ‘It’s a bit more bus than you need, isn’t it?’

      Hi travelrat,
      But, the luxury, the comfort especially after a hard days work, can you imagine hopping onto the bus covered in grease? Oh what a sight. 🙂

    I love it. I love the smaller profile. I’d love the idea of a quieter, less smelly bus. It doesn’t appear that there’s much room for your belongings, however. And, a lot of buses have places to put one’s bike. Lastly, is it handicap accessible?
