An all-wood design supercar the Splinter is currently displayed at the Essen Motor Show 2015 and is definitely noteworthy among other items presented at the event.

Most of Morgan’s model range still use wooden components for that retro feel despite some obvious disadvantages. At Essen Motor Show 2015 a wooden American supercar went on display and it was not a Morgan, but a Splinter!

wooden supercar

This one-off supercar was designed as a show piece by a team led by Joe Harmon, an industrial designer from North Carolina. The idea first came about as a result of a university project with a fair amount of inspiration from the World War II-era de Havilland Mosquito airplane (another all-wood design). 

the Splinter

A mixture of bent and laminated wood veneers including woven cherry skins and tessellated end-grain balsa core was used in the bodywork. The chassis is a laminated veneer monocoque fitted with unequal-length upper and lower laminated wood A-arms with height-adjustable air-bag springs and adjustable shocks. And the engine is a monster, mid-engined aluminium 7.0 litre V8 unit packing 600hp.
