…The Splinter looks sinister?


Joe Harmon wants to build a supercar out of wood.

Called the Splinter, and featuring a mid-engined, monocoque design that is to be made almost entirely out of wood laminates, it definitely looks the part, but since this mock up was created as part of a graduation project, the Splinter site is about as close to production as this car is ever going to get.

Yes, it’s that cool.

The Kimini 2.2 is a “from-scratch, home-built, carbon shelled, mid-engined (Honda Prelude VTEC 4-cylinder) Mini.

After 3,000 hours of labor and $20K in components and material, I’d say the end result speaks for itself.
