The uniqueness of this prototype is that it runs by ecologically clean fuel – ethanol. This type of fuel is the processing of sugarcane, corn and beets. And the unique construction of the designed bolide’s engine will enable to overcome 200 km with 1 liter of ethanol, BNews.kz correspondent reports.

The bolide was assembled by the enthusiasts of SatbayevUniversity over 3 months. The engine of the vehicle based on the Hondaaf55e engine. However, each detail was to be redesigned and readjusted under the necessary characteristics. The frame was designed using special duralumin pumps. The body was designed from fiberglass. The glazing where the drive sits was made of polycarbonate.

Such a prototype was designed to participate in the annual marathon, with the aim of finding new, as well as to develop the presently applied types of fuel. The winner of the marathon is the vehicle that could overcome more kilometers with 1 liter of fuel. The marathon has been held since 1939 in Detroit, London, Singapore, Rio de Janeiro. This year the first tournament is to be held from March 8-11, 2018 in Singapore.
