The Splinter wooden carWe ran this story before – but check out this video.
A high-performance, mid-engined supercar is being built from wood composites as a graduate project at North Carolina State University. Wood is being used whereever possible, including the chassis, body, and large percentages of the suspension components and wheels. The car has a target weight of 2500lbs and a power goal of over 600 horsepower.
They aren't trying to sell anything; they aren't trying to save the world, and they aren't advocating that everyone should drive a wooden car. This project is a scholastic endeavour in which the team is simply trying to explore materials, learn, teach, share ideas, and stimulate creativity.
