How cool is this!?

Students at the Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands have designed and built a fully functioning car made almost entirely out of waste products.

Luca, as the car is known, is made out of plastic recovered from the ocean, along with horse hair, coconut fibres and flax.

The full-electric vehicle has two electric motors and a top speed of 50mph.

The car is set to be tested soon for road-worthiness. Although, the main aim of the project is to inspire car manufacturers and demonstrate that waste products can be resourceful.

What do you think? Would you drive a Luca?
