We all know about Japan’s brilliant ingenuity in the manufacturing process across many industries, as well as its ability to make amazingly reliable and efficient cars. But going green car manufacturers turn over a new leaf in history of automaking – Japanese furniture company Sada-Kenbi has constructed a new supercar - a hand-made wooden auto, called ''Maniwa''.
This Japanese car is made entirely out of wood. Well, except for the engine and other mechanical parts. It's fully functional and is able to reach the speed of 90km/h so you can feed your fellow drivers some sawdust if you have to! It has a motorcycle handlebar instead of a traditional steering-wheel, a working stereo and even cool wooden Lambo doors. The cost of this remarkable wooden masterpiece is $32,000.
The stylish Maniwa took about five months to build. It looks like a convertible with it's roof folded down, the steering column of the car is made from a Honda scooter. The wooden sports car has just one front seat, for the driver, but can accomodate yet two passengers on the wooden bench in the back. It also has a fully functional rear wing, operational gull-wing doors, mirrors, impeccably sculpted headlights, wooden hubcaps, a glass engine cover and handlebar steering.
Japanese Supercar is a delight to see and experience the drive, it was definitely created to impress and conquer the hearts of car lovers. Not only it is unique and extraordinary looking, excellent for the eccentric people, but it also environmental friendly, being made from natural materials. It doesn't have only the good looks, but is reliable and practical, too. Just don't forget to spray it once a year for bark beetles :)
For now, the rumor has it that Maniwa’s manufacturer plans on hiring out the vehicle for remarkable events like weddings.
