Not sure what's wrong with my code

class RaceCar: color = "" fuel_remaining = 0

def __init__(self, color, fuel_remaining, **kwargs):
    self.color = color
    self.fuel_remaining = fuel_remaining

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

I'm not sure why the test isn't passing for my code.

racecar.py
class RaceCar:
    color = ""
    fuel_remaining = 0

    def __init__(self, color, fuel_remaining, **kwargs):
        self.color = color
        self.fuel_remaining = fuel_remaining

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

For reference, this is the question:

OK, let's combine everything we've done so far into one challenge!

First, create a class named RaceCar. In the init for the class, take arguments for color and fuel_remaining. Be sure to set these as attributes on the instance.

Also, use setattr to take any other keyword arguments that come in.
