The incredible edible bio-car

Okay, maybe not edible. But it is very natural.

University of Warwick WMG (innovative industry solutions provider) researchers managed to make an environment-friendly race car.

Eco One runs on bio-fuels and bio-lubricants, has tyres made of potatoes and brake pads made of cashew nut shells. The car can run with a speed up to 150mph (241km/h) and will be shown at the Sexy Green Car Show (Eden Project in Cornwall).

In other news, a car going 150 mph crashed into a farm market in Cornwall when it accelerated unexpectedly, the tires blew, and the brakes failed.
