Splinter supercar

6 01 2009

Forget your battery-power or E85 Ethanol fuel, if you want a real ‘green’ car the Splinter wins hands down, being made entirely out of au-natural wood. Granted, there’s a few ol’ components like the engine which still remain metal, but all the structural and bodywork of the car is completely out of wood.

Under the er, bonnet lies a twin-supercharged Cadillac V8 lump good for over 600bhp mated to a 6-speed ‘box. Plenty of power, but how will leaf-spring suspension (also made of wood) make it handle?
