World's First "Vegan-Powered" Car Ready for the Track

Vegan race car champion Leilani Münter will debut the first ever vegan-themed car at the historic Daytona International Speedway next month.

The world’s first vegan-themed car will soon hit the racetrack in Daytona, FL. Vegan race car driver Leilani Münter unveiled the car on Tuesday via her social media platforms. The Toyota Camry is decked-out with bold signage that reads “Vegan Powered” across the hood and body, and features all synthetic interiors. Münter—who drives for the Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA)—previously raced cars emblazoned with logos such as The Cove and Blackfish to promote awareness of the animal-rights documentaries to race enthusiasts. Named one of the top ten female race car drivers in the world by Sports Illustrated, the 42-year old offsets emissions by using only solar energy in her pit box and adopting an acre of rainforest after every race. According to Münter, the new car was “designed to bring a powerful vegan message to millions of race fans on and off the track.” The driver partnered with nonprofit A Well-Fed World to raise funds for a vegan outreach campaign—which will include food giveaways and starter kits—to be launched during the debut of the car at historic Daytona International Speedway on February 18
