You just read the headline right. No double check there, even we have got it all right. The world’s first wooden functional sports car has been unveiled.

The car was brain wreakingly designed and created by a design company in the United States of America named Joe Harmon Design. This car can, hold your breath guys, can be out sight with a top speed of 240 mph.

This wooden car was designed with ingredients such as maple, plywood and MDF, measures 4.6 meter-long and weighs 1,134 kg. Read the blog further for more. This wooden car which has a six-speed gearbox gets its raw thrust and power from a 4.6 L mammoth V8 engine plunked under its hood.

The proprietor of Joe Harmon Design and the brain behind this wooden sports car , 27-year old Joe Harmon said, “Wood is a truly amazing material to work with. It has a higher strength-to-weight ratio than aluminium or steel, and it possesses a versatility that makes many different types of construction techniques possible.”

If you wish to own the world’s first wooden sport car, it is available on the markets later this year but the design company still not decided its price.

I doubt this thing will go under production !

There are car's built with silver sheets,etc (those are for the rich)

But i don't get the point of coming out with wooden car's (whom are these for ?)
