UAE Sheikh to travel in the $17 million Superbus

What would you offer the Sheikhs in UAE if you are proposing mass transport? Well, you can’t give them a run-of-the-mill bus, right? And thus the idea of the Superbus project was born. Boasting speeds as high as 250 km/h (155 mph), reports suggest that the system is already a rage. A Sheikh will reportedly use it to travel between Abu Dhabi and Dubai. The bus offers seating capacity for as many as 23 passengers. Priced at €13 million ($17 million) for a bus, the Dutch inventor Wubbo Ockels is crafted out of lightweight materials and sports a gullwing door as opposed to the caterpillar-styled one and “offers an electric drivetrain.”
