A group of Japanese students ran a dry cell-powered vehicle at an average speed of 105.95 kilometres (65.83 miles) per hour Saturday to make the Guinness Book of World Records.

The car, powered by 192 Matsushita Oxyride AA dry-cell batteries, hit a top speed of 122.00 kph (75.81 mph) during time trials here in the presence of a Japanese agent for Guinness.

The 38-kilogramme (84-pound) vehicle is 3.3 metres (10.8-foot) long, 78 centimetres (2.6-foot) wide and 56 centimetres (1.8-foot) tall and is manufactured by students at Osaka Sangyo University with the help of Matsushita Electric Industrial Co.

Its body is made of carbon fibre reinforced plastic, a strong and light composite material. Link
