When most people think of a wooden vehicle, they don't think high performance. They are more likely to picture a canoe made of a hollowed-out log or a rickety wagon made of nailed-together planks. The Splinter, a high-performance, wooden supercar, is not made from these construction techniques. Essentially every wooden part of the Splinter is made from composite construction. Composites like carbon fiber or fiberglass have been seen in cars for decades, but a car using wood composites to the extent that the Splinter does has never been built before.
