British auto manufacturer Trident will soon be showing off its new biofuel-powered ultra sports car that is faster than most anything else on the road today. Where can one sign up for a test drive?

The Iceni Grand Tourer will be introduced September 5 at Salon Privé 2012 in London and it is sure to garner much attention from auto and green enthusiasts alike. The Tourer has a biodiesel, palm oil, linseed oil, or regular diesel fuel-powered 6.6-litre twin-turbo diesel engine which capable of powering the car from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 3.7 seconds. Put the pedal to the metal and you would see the speedometer top out at nearly 200 MPH. Prices start at £75 000, about US $118,000.

As for some eco-friendly details, Trident states that the engine turns at only 980 RPM at regular highway speeds and averages 70 miles per gallon while doing so, hardily beating the 50 MPG average of the fuel-efficient Toyota Prius.

Just for comparison sake, a 2013 petroleum-powered Ferrari California which also reaches 60 in 3.7 seconds and tops out at 193 MPH costs over $200,000 – and averages just 15 MPG.

The Iceni Grand Tourer is named after the ancient British tribe Iceni, which fought against the Romans around 60 A.D.

The sports car of the future may be arriving as soon as September of this year should the Iceni Grand Tourer meet expectations. Trident, we here at Revmodo would be more than happy to test the car and make sure it does all you say it can do!
