What if your car was towed by the wind?

German drivers Dirk Gion and Stephan Simmerer crossed Australia in 18 days in an electric car towed by wind (thanks to the kite that allowed the electric battery to recharge).  The above video is impressive!  Thanks very much to @arnaud_thurudev who showed this to me. More details on this awesome project can be found on the Windexplorer website.
