    "Renault is the first European motor manufacturer to include this feature in its catalogue. The swivel seat can be specified like any other option and is fitted directly at the Flins factory, in France, as the car comes off the assembly line, so there is no change to the delivery lead time for the customer," Renault said in a statement.

    This tour bus owned by a German tour company features a six-foot-long bed for each of its passengers, though each bunk is only about 3 feet wide by 3 feet high. There is a bathroom on the bus, but no, there are no shower or bathing facilities. Want to go to Africa when you sleeping?
    Jalopnik wirtes "The company is called Rotel Tours (the word is a portmanteau of "rolling" and "hotel") and it has, unbelieveably, been hosting bus-bed tours of Europe, Asia, and Africa since 1959. It was founded in 1945 by a man named — we are not making this up — George Hötel. His firm's buses cater almost exclusively to German tourists; in the past fifty years, they have done everything from crossing the Sahara desert to traversing Mongolia and Vietnam. "

    The 1988 Volkswagen Scirocco will be driven from Manchester to London powered only by roasted coffee granules. The pic click 2 enlarge!

    "It has been built by a team from the BBC1 science programme Bang Goes The Theory and will go on display at the Big Bang science fair in Manchester to show how fuels other than conventional petrol and diesel can power vehicles.
    The team calculates the Carpuccino will do three miles per kilo of ground coffee - the equivalent of about 56 espressos per mile.
    The journey will use about 70 kilos of ground coffee which, at supermarket prices of between £13 and £26 a kilo depending on brand and quality, will cost between £910 and £1,820, or between 25 and 50 times the £36 cost of petrol for the journey." dailymail said.
