The Formula 3 racing car is capable of reaching top speeds of around 125MPH despite being composed of a medley of vegetables. The steering wheel is created from a polymer derived from carrots and the bodywork is a mixture of starch and flax fibre. Even the steering wheel lubricants are plant based.

We've been hearing reports in the media the last few weeks that Wispas were making a comeback, after many years since the aerated chocolate bar was discontinued.
