Chinese Man Builds Mahogany “Lamborghini Roadster”, It's Electric

Chinese Builds Mahogany “Lamborghini Roadster” 1 photo
A Chinese carpenter from Putian, city of Fujian Province thought everybody should own an exotic sportscar, even though they probably couldn’t afford it. So instead of working three jobs a day for most of his life he decided to carve his own Lamborghini roadster out of mahogany.
First of all, wasn’t mahogany supposed to be a beautiful dark-wood color?

Secondly, when will these Chinese people stop carving cars in wood and actually start building metal ones. After all, if you struggle to make it, you might as well use it on the street for a change.

It was just the other day we stumbled upon a 74-year old mechanic from Maricopa, Arizona, who spent most of his life building mini-cars. Dwarf cars, he calls them, and they were made out of scraps. He build his first one from scratch in 1965 out of nine refrigerators. Point is, you don't have to be rich to build a car, you only need to know how.

Getting back to the weird vehicle in question, to be completely honest, it is actually able to run on the street. The vehicle, the man built out of carved pieces he later assembled, is not relying only on its looks. In fact, it’s been fitted with tires and an electric motor able to take this mahogany structure up to 30 km/h (18mph).

Reports are it took the craftsman over half a year and more than 100,000 yuan ($16,290) to build the car. However, it did pay off considering collectors have already offered him more than double for it so far.
