Sexy Solar Speed Written on June 12, 2008, by Ingeborg.

Czeers MK1Wise people told them it’s too early for a speedboat solely on solar energy. So here it is, the Czeers MK1. The black carbon fibre racer is built for say Dubai, where carbon is fluent in fuel and where the überrich people of our planet are. “Like in the development of planes and cars, we believe innovative technique starts at the top of the market”, says Nils Beers of Netherlands-based Czeers.
