Basically the last question wants you to define laps inside the init function.

class RaceCar:
    def __init__(self, color, fuel_remaining, **kwargs):
        self.color = color
        self.fuel_remaining = fuel_remaining
        self.laps = 0

        for key, value in kwargs.items():
            setattr(self, key, value)


    def run_lap(self, length):
        self.laps += 1
        self.fuel_remaining = self.fuel_remaining - (length * 0.125)
