The Miami Herald Features Cyclone Power Technologies' Clean, Green, Steam Engine

POMPANO BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - June 16, 2008) - Cyclone Power Technologies, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: CYPW) announced today that The Miami Herald has featured Cyclone and its revolutionary, eco-friendly engine in its Monday technology section.

Miami Herald reporter, Monica Hatcher, wrote of the award-winning Cyclone Engine and its inventor Harry Schoell: "The rising cost of gasoline, growing acceptance of the evidence behind global warming and the impact of dirty fuels on the environment have quickly brought investors and industry leaders around for a new, more serious look at his enterprise."

Ms. Hatcher also interviewed Joe Audette, an automotive analyst at Global Insight, who she reported saying: "'The engine's ability to run on multiple fuels could give it a significant edge in the marketplace. While engineers and the economy sort out which fuel sources work best, a fuel-flexible engine like the Cyclone could prove useful during the transition,' Audette said."

"We're extremely pleased to receive the attention of the Miami Herald," Cyclone's CEO, Mr. Schoell, commented. "Achieving additional coverage recently from the Orlando Sentinel, Los Angeles Times, Popular Science Magazine, Design News, EngineeringTV.com and the Sun Sentinel is so valuable in bringing the Cyclone Engine's story to the public."

In addition to media attention, Cyclone has recently received wide validation of its technology by being awarded: the 2008 (and 2006) Tech Award at the Society of Automotive Engineering (SAE) World Congress in Detroit; the 2008 "Environmental Business of the Year" by the Environmental Protection Department of Broward County, Florida; and Popular Science magazine's 2008 "Invention of the Year."

"The public at large, media and now industry titans are taking notice of our revolutionary engine technology," noted Mr. Schoell.

CORPORATE PROFILE

Cyclone Power Technologies is the developer and patent holder of the Cyclone Engine, a highly-efficient, environmentally-friendly external combustion engine. Invented by the company's President and CEO, Harry Schoell, the Cyclone Engine regenerates (or recycles) its heat, which allows it to run cleaner, cooler and more efficiently than traditional internal combustion engines. The Cyclone Engine is capable of running on any liquid or gaseous fuel, including ethanol, bio-diesel and propane, and is lubricated with de-ionized water instead of motor oil. By eliminating many subsystems like oil pumps, radiators and catalytic converters, the Cyclone Engine is expected to cost less to manufacture, operate and maintain; however, it is highly scalable and sufficiently powerful for applications ranging from lawn equipment and small home generators to cars, trucks and locomotives. The Broward County Environmental Protection Department recently named Cyclone Power Technologies as the Environmental Business of the Year, and Popular Science magazine recently named the Cyclone Engine 2008 Invention of the Year.
