Eco Friendly Kite Car

Have a look at this short video filmed at Ohope beach with the wind ranging 15-25 knots.
Marc Jacobs with help of his team made a first ever kite powered car, 100% eco friendly. It was the vehicles first ever test drive and everything went great, top speed of 61km/h was recorded!
Marc found an old rusting Mini and took it to his workshop where he stripped it of all of its gear such as motor, fuel tank, etc. New bearings, anchor rails got installed. New 15m Element kite got picked for this first ever test drive due to its grunt, safety and ease of use.
