Peter Bethune created “Earthrace”, which is powered by “biodiesel made of fat from his backside.” This carbon/Kevlar-hulled speedboat sports two, 350kW Cummins engines that generate 1080hp. See it in action after the jump

His eco-friendly vessel, Earthrace, is a wave-piercing 78-foot trimaran capable of hitting 45 knots (58 mph). Of course, nobody’s butt is big enough to sustain a 27,600-mile journey. Bethune’s contribution amounts to only a liter of fuel; the rest comes from vegetable oils and other animal fats
