Scientists have developed the world's most environmentally friendly race car, capable of reaching speeds of up to 160mph despite running on chocolate.
Scientists used potatoes and carrots to create the racing car
The car, known as WorldFirstF3, has a steering wheel made partly from carrots, mirrors from potato starch, seats from soybean oil foam, and brake pads from ground cashew nut shells.
Despite boasting the greenest of credentials, its makers at Warwick University insist this racer can compete with the best of them.
People love motor racing, and the trick is to do it in a more environmentally responsible manner.

Ben Wood, leader of the project, says the idea behind the racer is "to show what is possible" and to prove that "a racing car doesn't have to harm the planet."
The car, which is 95% biodegradable, can go from 0-62mph in under four seconds.
Powering the racer is a 2.0-litre BMW turbodiesel that can run on biodiesel, waste vegetable oil or chocolate.
