When you think wooden car, you don’t actually think sports car. Maybe a soap box pops into your head instead? Well, a U.S. design company has come up with a creative super car made of wood. Said to be the first wooden car in the world, the 4.6 meter-long, two-seater car is called “Splinter”. Ouch.
The car is made from plywood, MDF and plywood, has a 4.6 liter V8 petrol engine and six-speed gearbox. All that wood comes in weighing at 1,134 kilograms, just 240 kilograms less than the lightest Porsche 911 GT3. The car is expected to get 20 miles per gallon and reach a top speed of 240 miles per hour.
Will it actually be produced? Well, the design company, Joe Harmon Design, is said to release the car later this year and hasn’t decided a price for the “Splinter”.
