The Superbus, the project of a series of university students in Delft, Holland, is so gloriously absurd it's surreal. It's a 49-foot-long public bus that's 5.6 feet high, runs on electricity, seats 23 passengers in individual captain's chairs, has 16 gullwing doors, is intended to go 155 miles per hour and, while it doesn't follow routes, will receive smartphone texts and pick you up at your location.

Most important: it's been in development for five years and, yes, it's real. The student engineers took it out after a snowfall in the Netherlands for some ABS testing and not only did they get it up to a claimed 85 kilometers per hour (about 53 mph), it looks pretty composed. Follow the jump to watch how it handles emergency maneuvers.
