A man from Beijing turned his eco-friendly idea into a working concept vehicle for just $1600.

A 55-year-old farmer from Beijing, China, proclaims that he has created a functioning car powered by wind. The vehicle is constructed using what looks like scrapes of materials costing a total of $1600. It has a built-in electric engine which can be charged via the large fan at the front of the car.

The inventor, Tang Zhenping, states that his wind-powered electric car can reach speeds of up to 140 km/hr. He spent three months designing and constructing the concept automobile. Zhenping uploaded the clip onto China’s popular video-sharing site Youku, and received nearly 800,000 views within a day.
