Who would have thought this cool car made of wood?

The appearance of a unique car that is as cool as the classic car from 1900s. However, who would have thought that most of these vehicles were made of wood materials? Wow, an outstanding car!!
Peter Szabo, from the village of Corunca, near Targu Mures, worked three years to build the wooden car, which he named Julia, after his wife. (Picture from: http://adf.ly/1ZUEQB)
The car builder is Peter Szabo, a man from Corunca, Romania. It took time of three years and spent about ‎£13,915 or $20,000 or approximately Rp.260 million to create this unique wooden car and named 'Julia The Woodroaster'.
Julia the Woodroadster is fitted with reworked Mercedes-Benz seats while an electronically controlled hood hides a Ford Taunus V6 2.3-liter engine. (Picture from: http://adf.ly/1ZUEQB)
Julia - named after Szabo's wife - is a concept car that combines the retro lines and old school growl of a classic automobile, with modern innovations. This can be seen from the car designs are similar to the cars made in 1900s. While the impression of a modern era can be seen from the headlights operating system and entertainment devices using the tablet.
Mr Szabo spent $20,000 (£13,915) on hard ash wood for Julia's shell and interior. (Picture from: http://adf.ly/1ZUEQB)
Most of the car's exterior and interior are made of wood, such as the body, dashboard, steering wheel, lever, and others. The car seats taken from  Mercedes Benz. This roofless car is able to accommodate four people. While for the engine, uses a 2.3-liter V6 engine which taken from the Ford Taurus. This Romanian wooden car could reach a maximum speed of 88 kilometers per hour.
"After building a wooden carriage I said I wanted a bigger challenge. It's very rare to find a hard wood concept car of very good quality. It's almost impossible to find it anywhere in the world. It was a hard time for me but also a happy time. It was a great happiness for me to build it," Peter said, as quoted by the Daily Mail. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | DAILYMAIL]
