Supercars are supposed to be made from light alloys, right?
Late last year, we brought you a story about a wooden supercar known as the Splinter.
Well it seems that North Carolina State graduate student Joe Harmond is actually making progress on his tree-borne vehicle.
The car is supposed to have a 600 horsepower engine and a 240 mph top speed.
So if it hits something when at speed, then it may really be a splinter.
