Taylor Welden led an experienced seven-person team to design the “Stauro” city vehicle. The frame of the car, which cane be seen in the gallery here, is part of the design. Made from 100% recycled aluminum, the Saturo uses resin body panels that are eco-friendly.

The engine is an orange-oil powered steam engine which (it says in the source) can produce 700 horsepower. (I find that hard to believe.)

Implications - 100% recycled products are the best reflection of green initiatives and an embrace of environmentally-conscious consumer values. Products like these recycled car frames are instantly appealing to consumers who are constantly looking for businesses that are innovating with recycles products. Companies that can boast 100% recycled products are the epitome of modern consumer's desires.
