Luxury Sports Cars: News: Wood Splinter's Porsche

As far as Luxury Sports Cars go I have now literally seen it all.A wooden Luxury Sports Cars has been unveiled by North Carolina State University which can run faster than a Porsche or a Lamborghini! All this as part of their graduate project.

This Luxury Sports Cars will be named Splinter. It has been said that it can produce 700bhp from a twin supercharged 4.6 litre V8 engine which is an overwhelming 300bhp more than Porsche's 911 GT3. Most notably of all the car has a top speed of 240mph!

"Wood has a higher strength-to-weight ratio than aluminium or steel, and it possesses a versatility that makes many types of construction techniques possible. The satisfaction involved in making something from a piece of wood is awesome"

The price of this astonishing Luxury Sports Car is yet to be released but don't expect it to come cheap.
