The world’s first wooden supercar has been unveiled – and it’s faster than a Porsche or a Lamborghini. The ‘Splinter’ car can turn out a whopping 700bhp from its twin supercharged, 4.6litre V8 engine – almost 300bhp more than a Porsche 911.
SCROLL DOWN FOR PICTURES… And with a top speed of a staggering 240mph, it will leave the Porsche or even the brand new Lamborghini Revanton trailing in its wake. American Joe Harmon designed the car which is made almost entirely of wood.
The car was said to have been designed as his graduate project at the Industrial Design course – North Carolina State University. Amazingly, the chassis, body, wheels and a large proportion of suspension are also made of wood, and it is super fast too – even more than a Porsche or a Lamborghini.
