For those who didn’t know, most parts of the world observe ’No Tobacco Day’ every May 31. That means that those who have a habit of smoking what-have-yous are urged to keep it in their packs, at least for this one day.

Turns out, a group of five students from Xi’an, China had other things in mind in their attempt to recognize the global tobacco-free day. Using 10,280 empty packs of cigarettes, the five students were able to create a 300 kilogram likeness of a Bugatti Veyron, at least relative to what they could make of it. If that’s not amazing enough for you, the cigarette pack Veyron actually runs, too!

The whole project took over eight months to complete and after seeking help from over 2,500 - cigarette-smoking - students to collect all those empty packs, the five students were able to build their one-of-a-kind electric car and have since displayed it at the Xi’an Electrical and Information Institute where, as expected, it quickly became quite an attraction.

It seems they took so many cigarette packs just to build Faux Bugatti. Well, they made it build but not perfectly the same with the bugatti.
