The ecoF3 has a steering wheel made from carrots, a body made of potatoes and a seat made of soybeans. Vegetable fibres derived from the produce are mixed with resins to form many of the components, while oils sourced from chocolate and other plant-based materials are refined to produce fuel and lubricants.
The WorldFirst team has used a F3 chassis design for its race car, though the car and its engine fails to meet current FIA regulations.
Speaking with the Telegraph, a spokesman from the team said the backers of the project hope “Formula One teams will see that an environmentally friendly car is not necessarily a slow car.” According to WorldFirst’s own results, the ecoF3 is capable of speeds of up to 145mph but no other numbers of independent figures have been released.
