The Lowest Car in the World! [Video]
The Mirai was built by the students and teachers at the Automobile Engineering Course of Okayama Sanyo High School in Asakuchi, Japan. After several months of planning, the little car was put together in about a year by 9 teachers and 12 students. Now that’s school spirit.
Leave it to the Japanese to do something really amazing on a school budget. This thing is a proper piece of kit, even though you get the ‘banzai’ spirit driving down the road.
“It can be frightening to drive MIRAI on a big street, especially when the speed goes over 40km/h because the road is very close to the driver’s eye point,” said Harada Kazunari, Principal at Okayama Sanyo High School. “Also, you can feel afraid that you will be run over by other cars. So, we make it a rule, when we drive MIRAI on a busy street, to place a leading car to the front of MIRAI, and a guarding car in the rear.”
