Wooden Sports Car

Forget carbon fibre or special metal alloys, this Japanese sports car manufactured by Sada-Kenbi is made from wood. This special car was hand built by wood craftsmen and is actually legal to drive in Japan. The car can accelerate up to 80 kmh (50 mph) and is for sale at a bargain price of $44,000.

It also features a motorcycle-like handlebar steering system, gull wing doors and even has a stereo. It seats one driver up front on a wooden seat and has a wood bench behind for up to two passengers. Apparently Sada-Kenbi is not an auto manufacturer, but a woodworking company. They aimed to prove their business mantra: 'There is nothing that can't be made with wood.'
