At the Essen Motor Show 2015, there was a special supercar debut that was unlike any other. You see, this supercar is made of wood.
Called “Splinter,” designed by Joe Harmon, this car has a body and chassis that is built almost entirely of wooden composites. This includes woven strips of cherry veneer with a balsa core for the body and a laminated wood veneer monocoque. While it may be odd to see a car made of wood when there are materials like carbon fiber being used, you can’t deny that the woodwork and design of this car is gorgeous.
