While automakers are looking to strengthen sports cars with carbon fiber in this modern era, Japanese manufacturer Sada-Kenbi has come up with a wooden sports car that looks more like a piece of art than a vehicle. Entitled the “Maniwa,” the hand-built sports car is controlled by a motorcycle-like handlebar steering system and can reach a top speed of about 80km/h. Accommodating three passengers, the Maniwa gives access through gull wing doors and includes a music system for your entertainment. Priced at $44,000, the artistic vehicle has already become a street-legal car in Japan. Wooden objects have always been a center of attraction among the buyers, but the working model of wooden sports car is sure to turn heads on the road or track. Check out the video after the jump.
