Japanese Wooden Supercar

A Japanese furniture maker has produced a “Wooden Supercar,” which as the name suggests, is made out of wood. The vehicle, which can go up to 80km/h, costs around $32,000 . Here is a video of the SuperCar:


And another video showing Wooden Car being driven by President of the furniture company.



This car is produced by a local furniture maker in Maniwa city - and like all small companies in Japan, they dont have a site that I can direct you to.
The "Wooden Supercar" is 1.3 meters wide x 2.5 meters in length x 1.1 meters high and has a max speed of 80km/h.
You can see last nights coverage of this car at WBS (video is only available for today and is darn Real Player).
