Powered By Chocolate And Steered By Carrots…

A team of researchers at our very own Warwick University have come up with the first racing car designed and made from sustainable and renewable materials – dubbed the WorldFirst project. Components made from plant materials form the cars framework – with the steering wheel and seat derived from root vegetables, flax fibre and soya beans. The engine uses biodeisel derived from waste chocolate and vegetable oil….

And does it actually drive? Worldfirst attended the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July this year and were successful in taking it out on the track for timed runs, still managing 125 kmph around corners!

As chocoholics though we do wonder where the waste chocolate come from? Anyone in the know please drop us a line as we’d hate to see any more chocolate go to waste.
