Modern, environmentally-friendly vintage cars aren’t as contradictory as it sounds. Electric vehicle races are well established too.

And now one of the British teams has built a drivable prototype entirely from electronic waste: they used discarded E-cigarettes, cell phones, laptops and charging cables.

The waste came from companies and school pupils, and the concept was jumpstarted together with a British artist and designer.

It aims to show how electronic components can be reused, while also highlighting the realities of climate change.

Currently, more than 50 million tonnes of electronic waste are produced each year.

France is leading the way when it comes to making repairs, while bacteria, it seems, can’t get enough of scrap metal.
