Shell Philippines has brought a new fun set of toys to play with. This time, they've got us the Saltwater Supercars. What? Saltwater? Supercars? These are toy supercars that don’t run on Lithium-ion batteries but, yes, through the use of salt water – and you can have them for every P500-worth of purchase of Shell fuels or lubricants.
Best for kids and kids at heart, the Saltwater Supercar collection includes four spectacular racers to match every taste in color and coolness. The black one is ‘Shadow’, the red is ‘Fireball’, while the white and yellow are ‘Lightning’ and ‘Sunchaser’, respectively. All models feature an advanced modern aerodynamic body, kind of like the ones you see in Le Mans races.
However, before we delve deeper into how these Saltwater Supercars work, let’s talk about the effort Shell has put in making the toy itself environmental-friendly. To begin with, the track you’ll be racing your Saltwater Supercars soon is made from a 100% organic material known as Bagasse, a fibrous matter from crushing sugar cane stalks.
Okay, so how does salt water power these toys? There’s a science behind it but let’s cut it simpler. Each car is equipped with a tiny electric motor, composed of a metal plate for energy storage. Now, there are two small holes found on top of the cars, where you pour in droplets of salt water using a special dropper included inside the box. When the salt water comes in contact with the metal plate, electrons will start flowing and, voila, you have a toy that runs on salt water.
Did we get you all pumped-up to have these spectacular toys? Well, here are the promo mechanics to get your hands on one:
