"Miss Budwiser XSEV T4 Turbine 2 Wing Experimental"


Miss Budwiser Team Develops New-age Hydro.

First came the enclosed cockpit. Then, it was the turbine engine. In 1991 Bernie Little and his Miss budwiser crew were breaking more new ground with this new Experimental Surface Effect Vehicle (XSEV). This new design was use for wind tunnel testing to greatly improve the performance, stability and control. A revolutionary new concept in 3-point hydroplane design was born. The information gained from the testing was used to improve the current Miss Budwiser which races today.
