Carpenter makes Lamborghini style super car entirely out of Wood

A Lamborghini-loving carpenter realised he was never going to have the cash to buy a £260,000 supercar – so he made one out of WOOD.

Super car fan Yu Jietao stripped the body off an electric car then redesigned it using hand-carved rosewood.

And after he hit the road in China’s Jiangxi province, he quickly attracted media attention – and numerous offers to buy the car.

He said: “One person offered me what I would consider to be a small fortune, and more than enough to buy a real hot rod but I decided I don’t want to sell it.

“My wife really loves it as well and so we decided to keep it.”

Police have warned that technically it isn’t licensed because it was not made by an approved car manufacturer.

But that has not deterred Yu, 26, who is planning to challenge the wooden supercardecision.

He said: “I didn’t really copy any car when I made it but I guess I wanted a sort of Lamborghini feel about it.

“It is a topless roadster so isn’t suitable for all weathers, and has beetle-wing doors. It measures about four-metres-long, 1.5 metres wide and is just 1.5 metres tall.”

Video: New Ford GT Supercar Revealed At 2015 Detroit Auto Show

Video: New Ford GT Supercar Revealed At 2015 Detroit Auto Show

The Ford Motor Company has shocked the automotive world with the unveiling of an all-new GT supercar at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show.

As stunning as it looks, the GT on show in Detroit isn’t a concept to be watered down by the time production rolls around but a preview of the car that will be hitting showrooms sometime in 2016.

It’s got all the typical supercar cues such as a mid-mounted engine, rear-wheel-drive configuration, and a sleek, aerodynamic coupe body.

But instead of the typical V-8 engine found in most performance Fords, including the previous GT, the new generation will come packing an EcoBoost V-6 engine whose twin-turbochargers will help liberate more than 600 horsepower.

Some of the new aspects of the design include updated direct-injection and valvetrain features, aimed at boosting performance and efficiency. The transmission, meanwhile, is a seven-speed dual-clutch transaxle.

There’s still a lot of development work to be done, which is why we haven’t heard any official performance numbers just yet. Expect further announcements to be made in the coming months.

VIDEO: Start Your Day With This Blast To 213 MPH In The Ferrari LaFerrari

Start Your Day With This Blast To 213 MPH In The Ferrari LaFerrari

What better way to start the day than a blast up to 213 mph in Ferrari’s LaFerrari flagship. An owner of the stunning hybrid supercar took part in last month’s EvoMax event in the U.K., where drivers get to take their cars to the limit on a closed runway, and he was generous enough to take YouTube user David Yu for a ride in the passenger seat and as a result we have this latest video.

It shows the LaFerrari reaching 213 mph, but what’s more impressive is that the speed was reached just moments after the driver hit the car’s seventh and final gear.

In fact, the LaFerrari was already doing 209 mph when the seventh gear was selected, which leaves us wondering who fast the car could go on a longer stretch of road.

According to Ferrari, the LaFerrari will reach a top speed in excess of 217 mph. Its power comes from a hybrid drivetrain that pairs a V-12 engine with Ferrari’s own HY-KERS hybrid setup designed to boost output and lower emissions, and peak output is a staggering 950 horsepower and “more than” 664 pound-feet of torque.

In 2025, what will large trucks look like? To answer that question, Mercedes-Benz has created its Future Truck 2025 study to provide a glimpse of the shape of things to come in the trucking industry.

Mercedes-Benz believes that in ten years’ time, trucks could be driving autonomously on highways with fuel efficiency set to improve tremendously alongside reductions in emissions.

In terms of design, the Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025 study combines function, efficiency and emotion in a fascinating way. As a result, it is unlike any other truck on the market.

It incorporates flowing and curved surfaces while also including a completely new lighting design. When the driver is behind the wheel and in control of the truck, the headlights and front grille are illuminated white while when in autonomous driving mode, these lights change to blue.

The interior of the Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025 study is similarly minimalist. It adopts a flowing wood panel design across the floor and passenger side of the dashboard. Gone are traditional truck controls and in their place are touchscreen displays.

Traffic cops seize £250,000 Lamborghini

Traffic cops seize £250,000 Lamborghini

The driver of a £250,000 supercar was left standing by the side of the road after it was seized by police in Warwickshire. Traffic cops who pulled over the 217mph Lamborghini Aventador in Kenilworth town centre found that his licence had been revoked.

The driver, a man in his mid-30s, was summoned to appear in court at a later date. The question of whether he was driving with no insurance is still being investigated. He was left to make his own way home after a large crowd had gathered to watch.

Officers also discovered there were outstanding finance payments on the 6.5-litre V12 car – one of only 4,000 ever built – and which can do 0-60mph in under three seconds. It will now be sold at auction to pay off the finance company.

Boxer Floyd Mayweather and singers Justin Bieber and Kanye West and are among some of the car’s celebrity owners. Pc Richard Prior, of Warwickshire Police’s Operational Patrol Unit, said: “I’ve pulled over a Bentley Continental before, but this tops it.”

Pc Prior and a colleague were on routine patrol on Wednesday afternoon when their marked car’s ‘automatic number plate recognition’ system (ANPR) flagged up the Lamborghini.

“We saw him on the main road through Kenilworth and stopped him outsideKenilworth Castle,” said the officer. He pulled over straightaway. He got out and was very pleasant, very co-operative. He explained the car was not his. Said he had borrowed it.

“Our investigations showed his driving licence had been revoked by the DVLA. He said he didn’t know anything about it, but was unsurprisingly fine about it because it wasn’t his car.” Pc Prior added: “There was a joke about who would drive it back, but we got a professional recovery company to take it to a compound in Leamington.”

Driving licences can be revoked for medical reasons or for failing to keep personal details up-to-date.
