PHOTOS: Sports Car Parts Made from Newspaper


Last year, Dutch design label Vij5 made headlines in the green scene for its unique line of furniture and home decor items made from recycled newspaper. The innovative material – appropriately dubbed NewspaperWood by designer Mieke Meijer – was unveiled at an exhibition in Milan last year, where Vij5 designers were approached by French automaker Peugeot. After a year of working together in secret, the two labels unveiled their futuristic concept car – which is on display at the 2012 Paris Motor Show until Oct. 14. Along with super-efficient engine technology, the Peugeot Onyx concept car features NewspaperWood material in its interior – drawing attention from car-lovers and reuse enthusiasts alike.
