(Worldkings.org) The splinter weighs 1,134 kilograms — 240 kilograms less than the lightweight Porsche 911 GT3. Despite its power, it will achieve 20 mpg.

A U.S. design company has created the world’s first wooden supercar, which would put both Porsche and Lamborghini in the shade with a staggering top speed of 240 mph.

The 4.6 meter-long, two-seater “Splinter” car, made from maple, plywood, and MDF, has a 4.6-liter V8 petrol engine and a six-speed gearbox.

The splinter weighs 1,134 kilograms — 240 kilograms less than the lightweight Porsche 911 GT3. Despite its power, it will achieve 20 mpg.

The woven strips of cherry veneer with a balsa core for the body and a laminated wood veneer monocoque prevent Splinter from accidentally catching fire.

This mid-engine supercar is powered by a small-block 7.0-liter V8 engine generating over 650 hp to the rear wheels.
