…You can grow your own Eco One?

Eco Speedster

How do you grow a sports car?

By following the Eco Speedster recipe, you make the tires out of potatoes, the brake pads out of ground cashew shells, and the body from help and rapeseed oil, then power it with a biofuel made from sugar beet and fermented wheat.

This 95% biodegradable wonder must be slow though, right?

Not exactly.

With a top speed of 150 mph, a 0 to 60 of under 4 seconds, and 35 mpg’s, it’s a fast and ecologically friendly way to get around town.

Could this be the future of the grow it yourself auto?

$40,000 says so.
