Another car that is made from biomass ... wood

This is the second vehicle that we've shown you which is made almost entirely of biomass. The first one was undoubtedly cool and used hemp materials for the bodywork. That car ran on ethanol and would be a first class ride for the right person, and it was capable of 150 miles per hour. This one, on the other hand, is made entirely of wood. The source article does not mention if it was nailed, screwed of glued together... maybe all three. I would not recommend such high speeds in it, which is alright 'cause it's probably not capable of them anyway. Well, maybe rolling down a hill with one heck of a tail wind! Anyway, the idea of actually driving a car of wood is rather scary, I don't think I'd do it. That other biomass car, the Eco One, would look absolutely perfect in my driveway!
