It's fast, it's furious, and it's partially made from carrots. The WorldFirst eco-friendly race car - the first Formula 3 racing car made from sustainable materials - is set to debut on the 17th October.
But does it signal that the racing industry is on the cusp of a green revolution?
There's certainly much anticipation surrounding the long-awaited first outing of the F3 race car. If all goes to plan, the team of researchers from Warwick University hope their car will speed its way to an environment-friendly victory at Brands Hatch in October.
"Our feeling is that it will either significantly outperform the field or do quite the opposite," says team member Steve Maggs. "Obviously, we hope it comes first by a long way...but you will never find out how well a racing car does until you actually race it."
Chris Aylett, Chief Executive of the Motorsport Industry Association, says there's so many fuel options on the table right now it's hard to pick a clear winner.
"I see many different energy sources being used in the sport over the next decade or more - with no clear 'energy' winners evident as yet. Second generation bio-fuels, including diesel, will certainly be one of the popular choices."
If enough people want sustainable technology in racing then the industry will adapt to meet their needs, he adds. "Commercial motorsport is about entertainment. If the public find entertainment from cars and bikes that are perceived as 'green' then motorsport will respond by creating them for the sponsors or manufacturers involved."
