The carrot cellulose-based steering wheel from a new Formula 3 prototype car that’s also powered by chocolate, (aren’t we all) and has a body from potatoes is on display at the London Science Museum.

The car, developed by the Warwick Manufacturing Group, can accelerate from 0-60mph (100km/h) in 2 seconds, faster than an existing F3 car, as well as get around a corner at 125mph.

The car demonstrates how it is possible to use more environmentally friendly organic materials that can substitute for glass fibre or metals, like the nano-cellulose steering wheel which is on display as part of the London Science Museum’s Nano-cellulose exhibition.

Could we maybe one day compost our old cars?
