The Splinter: Man Makes A 600HP Supercar Out Of Wood!

This one-off supercar was designed as a show piece by a team led by Joe Harmon, an industrial designer from North Carolina. The bodywork uses a mixture of bent and laminated wood veneers including woven cherry skins and tessellated end-grain balsa core. The chassis is a laminated veneer monocoque fitted with unequal-length upper and lower laminated wood A-arms with height-adjustable air-bag springs and adjustable shocks. The engine is aluminium 7.0 litre V8 unit packing 600hp. It uses a 6-speed manual gearbox, although the performance will probably never be measured.
