Students from the Coventry University Auto Design in Britain have put together created a design for a two-seater sports car that can run on ethanol fuel and offers performance figures similar to a Lotus Elise. It became Coventry University in 1992 and is made up four faculties: the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, the Faculty of Business and Law, the Faculty of Engineering, Environment and Computing, and the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences. It also represents the number of times the institution has changed its name, starting with Coventry College of Design in 1843, becoming Lanchester Polytechnic in 1970, and Coventry Polytechnic in 1987. In stock trim, this engine delivers 270 hp, which should be plenty for the light weight car.
