Whatever you can do I can do cheaper …

Capitalizing on the attention given to the Tata Nano, a group of 5 students has built a functioning car that is priced at only Rs. 11,000, or 1/10th the price of a Nano. Using otherwise unusable scrap material, the car’s materials are excellent examples of resourcefulness and ingenuity.

“The rear window of the car has been sourced from a Fiat 1965 model. A Kinetic scooter’s and TVS Scooty’s tyres make up the wheels of the car. The petrol tank is an unusable old geyser from a neighbour’s home, which has been connected to a gutter pipe and stuck with strong adhesive. The tank has a 3-4 litre capacity. A 125cc Honda engine ripped off from a Kinetic scooter is the vehicle’s engine. In fact, other than a hydraulic brake, every other component of the car is scrap material.”

Avashya and PluGGd.in both have the story.
