AMAZING: the World's Fastest Log Car
Sure, it's probably the world's only log car, but this wooden ride recently set its own Guinness World Record.
The first time I experienced this insane build, my brain closed down its circuits. This is actually the fastest and possibly only.. wait for it.. Tree car. More specifically, it is a car made out of a western red cedar log with a concave mouth for a "grille", a wooden roll bar and wooden fenders, and a pair of turbines protruding from its rear.
But cool as hell
The thing looks ludicrous, like something a crazed Woody the Woodpecker would drive, or maybe a George Barris creation if he had ever gotten lost in the Pacific Northwest with an axe and a flask of whiskey. The car was created from a single log from British Columbia, Canada, with the build taking over 3,000 man hours. The log car is rear-wheel drive, uses the mechanicals from a Mazda RX-7, and is powered by eight lithium-ion batteries. More than 500 pounds of them.

It is unlikely to see the production line anytime soon — and this Ford is not even official, however we still wouldn't mind hopping behind the wheel of this.
