Millionaire fairs are meant to bring everything super-luxurious under one roof for the convenience of the deep-pocketed shoppers. The ninth edition of the Millionaire Fair Amsterdam also saw high-end cars, diamond studded watches, high-tech gadgets and best spirits too. However the most expensive product of this fair is the green Superbus Concept developed by Professor Wubbo Ockels. Carrying a tag of 13 million Euros ($17.2 million), this 15 meter long eco-friendly mode of transport sports a complete carbon fiber chassis including the cockpit and the rear.

TenCate, the supplier of the carbon fiber, reports that it is designed to compete with the cars and the trains by rendering comfortable, demand-dependent and point-to-point transport and thanks to high speed. The electrically powered Superbus can ferry 23 passengers with ease and consumes as much energy when driving 250 km per hour as a normal bus at 100 kilometers per hour. The company also provided the carbon laminate, a material widely used in aerospace industry for among others the door panels on the inside.
