Default Buckeye Bullet 2 Fuel Cell Racer Breaks 300 MPH

A student engineering team from Ohio State University broke into the 300 mph club yesterday with their hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicle. The Buckeye Bullet 2 averaged 300.992 MPH yesterday in the flying kilometer, with a top recorded speed of 304 MPH

he original Buckeye Bullet was the first electric vehicle to break the 300 MPH barrier, and the Buckeye Bullet 2 continues that legacy, in hydrogen form. This vehicle differs from Jesse Jame’s hydrogen fuel streamliner in that it actually went the whole distance at a sanctioned event, and the power comes from a custom 700 horse electric engine fed by hydrogen fuel cells. Jesse Jame’s vehicle was a big-block Chevy fueled by actual hydrogen.

The record run was set at the Bonneville Salt Flats yesterday, though it has not yet been officially confirmed. The front-wheel drive Buckeye Bullet 2 now holds the FIA record for the first hydrogen vehicle to break 300 MPH, and the fastest recorded speed for an electric drive vehicle. How come I never got to do cool things like this in college? I just had a lot of friggin’ homework…

Kudos to the Buckeyes though, this is quite an achievement, one that will hopefully be made “officially official” in the coming days

Gratz to the team at Buckeye Bullet, from a fellow buckeye. You guys do some really crazy stuff. How does it feel to have the fastest hydrogen car in the world?

I saw this thing in person last year. Here are a few pics I took.

The shell hanging on the right side, cost $800,000 to make.

Batteries costing millions:
