Proving that green technology is more then hybrid technologies or hydrogen powered vehicles, Toyota subsidiary Toyota Industries Corporation, set the new compressed air speed record at 80.3MPH at the Japan Automobile Research Institute’s test track in Japan.  They plan to post the new record to the Guinness World Book or Records.  The car is setup like a reverse air conditioner, pulling energy out of the compressed air from the compression of air into a “fuel tank”.  The Ku:Rin won’t be showing up at your local Toyota showroom anytime soon as it only goes two miles.
