Race cars and vegetables…I guess, it doesn’t quite sound right. You might be wondering whether this is an advertisement for a car or vegetables? Before you get anymore confused meet Lola the WorldFirst Formula 3 racing car which can be powered by chocolate derivatives or plant based oils and has steering wheel made from carrots, seat from soybeans and other parts from potato and flax.
Feel difficult to digest but it is absolutely true. The credit for this sustainable and eco-friendly Lola goes to researchers at the Warwick Innovative Manufacturing Research Centre, a part of University of Warwick.
The components of the car have not only been built up with natural resources but even integrates discarded products for that green touch you might have been looking for. If still not impressed then you might like to know that this fascinating car uses a radiator that is capable of converting ozone back to oxygen making a cleaner environment as it zooms past. Coming to the speed factor, Lola boasts of ” a top speed of 135 miles per hour and can go from zero to 60 in 2.5 seconds”.
