Possibly in an attempt to convince attendees that a green auto show actually can be sexy, the UK’s Eden Project named their eco-car fiesta — wait for it — “the Sexy Green Auto Show.

Luckily it seems to be living up to its moniker with an abundance of tempting auto treats, from a Volkswagen that gets 72 mpg to a racing car that can run on a 50 percent blend of jatropha nut biodiesel.

And god bless ’em, I saw zero scantily clad babes in the show’s program — just a whole lot of carbon fiber and flex-fuel engines. Now that’s sexy.
