This is the most extraordinary thing I've see in a long while. It's a meticulously crafted model of a V8 engine. Made of paper. And it runs!

The model is powered by a small electric motor at around 3-4 rpm. It was developed by Montreal artist Yee, who creates remarkable things from paper. More after the jump.

Paper V8 model 450

Yee?s website has Quicktime videos of the motor in action. Check it out!
