wooden sports car


forget carbon fibre or special metal alloys, this japanese sports car manufactured by sada-kenbi is made
from wood. also known as maniwa, this special car was hand built by wood craftsmen and is actually
legal to drive in japan. the car can accelerate up to 80km/h and is for sale at a bargain price of 44,000
USD. 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. the designers even made a pedal-power version for kids
