Talk about a caffeine boost. Someone came up with a car that's powered by coffee, kind of.

It uses the waste product from coffee production instead of gas.

The waste is heated in a charcoal fire to break it down into carbon monoxide and hydrogen. That's what powers the engine.

The car pictured here can go more than 65 miles per hour.

That's the fastest yet, for this type of vehicle.
