World Records honour for coffee-powered bar
A COFFEE-powered car which reached 65.5mph is to be included in the Guinness Book of World Records.
The modified 1989 Ford P100 pick-up, designed by Teesdale-born Martin Bacon, will be included as the fastest car of its kind.
To celebrate the accolade, Mr Bacon today (Thursday, September 12) took the car to a Co-op store in Newton Hall, Durham City.
The Co-op commissioned Mr Bacon’s successful world record attempt earlier this year to celebrate ten years since it switched all its own-brand coffee to Fairtrade.
