Paolo Martin's unique proposal for Bugatti EB110

~Radical Concept~ Apparently gloomy days have also been experienced by a well-known automotive company like Bugatti. In the 1960s, the Molsheim-based company had declared bankrupt and should ceased production for a long time before revived back in the 1980s. The idea of Bugatti’s revival was initially proposed by none other than Ferruccio Lamborghini together with ex-Lamborghini engineer and designer Paolo Stanzani to Romano Artioli.
The most radical proposed design concept for the Bugatti EB110 called Bugatti 110 PM1 by Paolo Martin in 1989. (Picture from: SportscarDigest)
This happened when Ferruccio wanted to start another project after selling his raging-bull logoed company in 1981. At that time Romano Artioli was known widely as a Bugatti collector, turn out also had a personal ambition to establish a company worthy of Ettore Bugatti’s legacy, Bugatti macaron, and the horseshoe grille. And made the initial idea to estabilish a new brand changed into a wildly ambitious plan to revive one of the all-time great auto marques.

Disagreement with Artioli’s ambition to go huge from the very start, then prompted Ferruccio Lamborghini retreated. Following the dispute, Artioli and Stanzani soon started working on a draft to acquire the Bugatti brand. After successfully acquiring the brand, they teamed up with like-minded enthusiast, automotive historian Jean-Marc Borel founded a holding company called Bugatti International in Luxembourg in 1987.
The Bugatti 110 PM1 featured with a panoramic windshield and a floating rear wing integrated within the diagonal character line starting behind the front wheels. (Picture from: AllCarIndex)
Borel was managing the holding, while Ettore’s youngest son Michel Bugatti was among the board of directors. Romano Artioli himself led the Bugatti Automobili S.p.A. while 35% of the Bugatti International holding was held by Tecnostile, a highly regarded independent engineering company employing former Lamborghini personnel. In short to strategically place Bugatti at the center of the supercar industry, the company then established a modern production facility in Campogalliano, the outskirts of Modena.
It is interesting that in the Paolo Martin's design appears to reference the Luigi Colani’s extraordinary Lamborghini Miura Le Mans Concept of 1970. (Picture from: SportscarDigest)
In early days of this newly resurrected auto brand the man in charges leading the project was Paolo Stanzani together with Tecnostile, envisioning the underpinnings of the car. Both Artioli, Stanzani, and the principal Tecnostile team of Achille Bevini, Tiziano Benedetti, and Oliviero Pedrazzi agreed that the car had to go beyond the well-established concept boundaries of the time, namely the mid-engined V12 supercar. Still, the team spoke from experience, as they developed the chassis and the engine of the Lamborghini Miura.
The Bugatti 110 PM1's design revolved around aerodynamic efficiency, but it proved to be too far-out and definitely not elegant enough to be considered for production. (Picture from: SportscarDigest)
In the car design later known as the forerunner of the Bugatti EB110, apart from involving its own designer team, the company also invited several well-known designers at the time such as Giorgietto Giugiaro, Paolo Martin, Marcello Gandini, and Nuccio Bertone to create the looks of the upcoming car. A quartet of accomplished designers returned their vision for the future Bugatti and each was special in its own right.
The Bugatti 110 PM1 concept sat on display as a wooden maquette at the  the 65th Turin International Motor Show in 1991. (Picture from: Bestinsketch.it)
After some time ago we had discussed Giorgietto Giugiaro' designed car called the Bugatti ID90 Concept. Well, now we will discuss about the most radical proposal came from Paolo Martin (a former Pininfarina designer) who created a unique prototype called the Bugatti 110 PM1 in the 1989.
The Bugatti 110 PM1 concept shown as a model of sports car in 1: 1 scale and made entirely of wood. A structure whose shape exceeds the stylistic value. (Picture from: SportscarDigest)
The car appears in such an unusual shape with a panoramic windshield and a floating rear wing integrated within the diagonal character line starting behind the front wheels. Meanwhile, Bugatti 110 PM1 was a single seater sports car controlled by a joystick and “paddles” rather than a steering wheel. It is interesting that in the Paolo Martin's design appears to reference the Luigi Colani’s extraordinary Lamborghini Miura Le Mans Concept of 1970.
The Bugatti 110 PM1 concept has a single-seater cabin consists of a capsule in which the steering wheel is replaced by two handwheels located on the arm rests, for a more ergonomic ride. (Picture from: Carstbatnevermadeitetc)
The designer said that the philosophy of the project was essentially to create two distinct areas, that of traction and strength tied to earth and that of the living cell with aerial shape and ideally detached from the body. Inside its capsule cabin consists only one-seater in which the steering wheel is replaced by two handwheels located on the arm rests, for a more ergonomic ride. For safety, the driver has a four-point anchor belt that incorporates an abdominal airbag.

Although they had made in a 1:4 scale model but this project reportedly did not run smoothly, due to the design proved to be too far-out and definitely not elegant enough to be considered for production and later the project was cancelled.😩
The Bugatti 110 PM1 concept in any case a reality resolved in a traditional way and presented so simply, to reawaken that intimate sense of taste and charm that always accompanies a valid work for a long time. (Picture from: SportscarDigest)
Furthermore, in 1991 this project had back on the track after Joshiro Kitami, a Japanese businessman was interested in it and wanted to revived the Ford Cobra's brand in which he had investments. Even in that time the designer had executed its polystyrene model to start engineering, but unfortunately this operation back to fail due to financial problems.😭
The Bugatti PM1 Concept known as a single-seater supercar made entirely of wood while sat on display at the National Automobile Museum (Il Museo Nazionale dell’Automobile) in early year of 2016. (Picture from: la Repubblica)
It made the designer then switched to build a 1:1 scale model out of wood. Finally, the wooden maquette of Bugatti 110 PM1 (only bodywork) finished and shown to the public for the first time at the  the 65th Turin International Motor Show in 1991.
Observed in its unique technical aspects or appreciated simply as an "unusual mobile" car, the PM1 is in any case a reality resolved in a traditional way and presented so simply, to reawaken that intimate sense of taste and charm that always accompanies a valid work for a long time. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | BESTINSKETCH.IT | SPORTSCARDIGEST ]

A heavyweight wooden Suzuki Jimny

If you often travel out of town, you will usually find miniature cars made of wood that are sold in souvenir shops. However, this is a different matter from miniatures, precisely in Bandung apparently there are some real vehicles that are made of wood. And who was the owner of those wooden bodied vehicles?
The wooden-bodied Suzuki LJ80 'Jimny' owned by Fawaz Salim of Bandung. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/2D1TMgd)
The owner named Fawaz Salim, a businessman, and owner of a timber company in the city called 'Equator Wood.' When you look at his collection it turns out he has made several vehicles out of wood. In the collection there are Suzuki Jimny LJ80 (in Indonesia, it usually called 'Jimny Jangkrik,' and 'jangkrik' means 'cricket'), then VW 181 or VW Safari, and there is also a wooden body Vespa scooter, etc.
Suzuki LJ80 'Jimny' owned by Fawaz Salim made of 'sonokeling' type of wood(Picture from: https://bit.ly/3eXC6QZ)
The vehicles mentioned above can really be operated on the road like a vehicle in general. Because they all were built base on the original vehicles, just the body is changed of wood. Fawaz said that for the manufacture of wooden vehicles, it started from his fad and just trial and error.
The wooden-bodied Suzuki LJ80 'Jimny' needs one and a half years until all is completed at a cost of more than Rp.200 million(Picture from: https://bit.ly/2D1TMgd)
The wooden-bodied Suzuki Jimny for example, its body is not from plywood, but really made of original wood of 'sonokeling' type from Kalimantan. According to Fawaz, the wood is originated from legal cutting and already has an official permit, due to the wood taken from the trees directly in the forest, so there's should have an official permit from Perum Perhutani (Indonesian Forestry Institutes).
All details and instruments of the Suzuki LJ80 'Jimny' are installed and functioning properly. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/2D1TMgd)
Initially, Fawaz bought the original Suzuki Jimny for Rp.14 million (approx $970). But when the car arrived it turned out that the conditions were not as expected. So then he decided to replace the Suzuki Jimny's body with wood. But because the original body has been wrecked and can not be used as a benchmark. So finally he borrowed a similar car body from one of his colleagues.
The wooden-bodied Suzuki LJ80 'Jimny' needs one and a half years until all is completed at a cost of more than Rp.200 million(Picture from: https://bit.ly/3eXC6QZ)
In the process of working on the car body, there are interesting things, namely the wooden body making process done by 1 person only. According to him the making of this body is a quite complex process, so there is a possibility the body will not be finished if done by many people. There are many mistakes that can be happened, such as the wooden joints that don't fit, or to pull different the cutting line, and others.
A portion of the wood joint details of the Fawaz Salim's wooden-bodied Suzuki LJ80. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/2D5ZCxd)
Meanwhile, to form an intact car, at least 7 people are needed. Where other crews work on wooden bodies, while mechanic crews tidy up the car's legs, machinery, and electrical systems. After the car completed, turn out the use of wood on the car body made its weight increased heavier and according to Fawaz, the weight of this wooden car is around 2 tons in weight.
The weight of this Suzuki Jimny LJ80 increased dramatically after its body was changed to wood(Picture from: https://bit.ly/3eXC6QZ)
This was also expressed by crews who participated in the work of this wooden car, they said that if the original body only needed three people to lift the whole body. And if the wooden-bodied needs about eight people, even then only the back. It is estimated that the weight ratio of this wooden car is three times heavier than the original body.
This is possible because the 'sonokeling' wood type used is more hardness than the teak wood, and of course far heavier than a metal plate. According to Fawaz to realize this wooden-bodied Jimny, it takes a time about one and a half years until all is completed at a cost of more than Rp.200 million (approx over more $13,800).

Is there anyone interested in making a vehicle like this?😆 If not. Let's jump here! If you just want to see other wooden vehicles. Or if you have the chance to travel to Bandung, you can see all of those wooden vehicles at Equator Coffee & Gallery*** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | OTOMOTIFNET.COM

The first F50 replica that could pass on the Venice River

Italy is known to have many traditions, besides making supercars. It turns out that they make some of the best traditional lake boats, plus they are also a cultural and artistic hub of Europe. And on this occasion, we will discuss one of the Italian creations that combining all those elements above and then makes it very unique work.
This unique wooden Ferrari F50 car-shaped boat by Livio De Marchi made over five months in the process. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/2VdIImy)
The Ferrari brand is one of the many famous brands from Italy that has become iconic for their automotive tradition, it's proved of more than 16 million people joining the Ferrari's fan pages. But due to the selling price of one unit of a Ferrari is fairly expensive so that not everyone can afford it. No wonder so many people dream of owning these Maranello-made supercars.

To satisfy the desire to have a sports car, not a few people who conduct experiments even imitate one of the Ferrari car model shapes. If it's in the form of a four-wheeled vehicle, the easiest way to get it is to make a replica by using the base of the Pontiac Fiero or Toyota MR2. But a different thing was done by Livio De Marchi, who made a wooden boat that has a shape resembled the Ferrari F50.
The details of each part of this unique wooden Ferrari F50 car-shaped boat made in detail so that the shape is similar to the original supercar. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/2VdIImy)
As quoted by Autoevolution, De Marchi spent five months working on it. The time was used to pursue the details of each part of this replica workmanship even made in detail so that the shape is similar to the original vehicle ranging from glass to the iconic Ferrari's prancing horse logo.

Unlike the original car that uses a 65-degrees V12 4.7L DOHC engine, the Ferrari F50-shaped boat made by De Marchi uses a Yamaha boat engine capable of carrying it to run along the water surface at medium speed. Thus the 900kg car-shaped boat became the first F50 replica that could pass on the surface of the Venice river.
To all those of you who want a Ferrari but are constrained by its exorbitant price, so the Italian gentleman's way can be an inspiration. Only in five months, his dreamed Ferrari can be owned even if only a wooden Ferrari F50 car-shaped boat. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | AUTOEVOLUTION

A Wooden Karmann Ghia Cabriolet from Jepara

Teak wood is indeed known for its strength when compared with other types of wood, but what happens if this type of wood is used as a car body? Will it be strong or not? To prove its strength, a wooden craftsman and also furniture entrepreneur from Jepara named Al Sadad tried to prove it. And not half-hearted he then made wooden-bodied car made of teak wood.
Other wooden automotive creations of Jepara craftsmen, ie the teak wood-bodied 1964 Karmann Ghia replica. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2UpeI7M)
As quoted from Muria News, besides working as a wood craftsman, the man from Jepara is also an automotive enthusiast, especially the Volkswagen cars. So it is not surprising if he then gets a crazy idea to make a wooden-bodied car made of teak wood. Even before, in 2015 he has ever made a teak wood-bodied Volkswagen Safari.
A teak wood-bodied 1964 Karmann Ghia replica made by Jepara craftsmen carries a 1,600 cc Mexican VW Safari engine. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2tnp8cG)
And the wooden car that he made this time is the Volkswagen Karmann Ghia and was also deliberately prepared to attend the largest Volkswagen car festival in Indonesia in 2017. Sadad explained that he needs something more complex and challenging in the making of the wooden-bodied car, and as we know the Karmann Ghia one of scarce VW models has many curvatures all over its body.

For this car, he claimed to have spent nearly Rp.150 million or (approx the US $10,000). It was used to buy an original VW engine, make the body from old teak wood and then decorate the interior and exterior of the car.

As quoted from Tribunnews Jogja, all raw materials are obtained from wood waste that is around his house and workshop. Although easy to find raw materials, the car production process is not as easy as imagined. In addition, some spare parts must be imported from abroad, such as rear lights. According to Sadad, he encountered many difficulties during the process of making this wooden car.
Al Sadad (wearing an orange shirt) poses with a wooden-bodied 1964 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia replica of his-owned. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2OpsGCq)
Among these are when making frames for windshields that demand high precision works. Because, if it is not suitable, so the car's windshield can be slipped when the car in use. In addition, to make the front hood arches are also not easy because it also requires extra accuracy in order to get results that are very similar to the original.

Furthermore, Sadad revealed that in the production of this car the most expensive cost was the craftsman cost because to carve in certain parts must be done by people who are truly experts.
After 4 months of work to combine its wooden body with a chassis, legs and a hunk of Mexican VW Safari engine, plus the touches of the creative hands of woodcarvers, then a replica of the VW Karmann Ghia cabriolet had been finished with a light brown colored distinctive teak wood veins and curves, coupled with a number of carvings with Jepara's typical wooden-carved motif.
The Karmann Ghia replica with the plate number of 'K 4 YU' whose body is made of old teak wood is not just mere decoration. So, the car also can run like a car in general because under its wooden hood there is a capacity of 1,600 cc engine. This wooden car has been displayed for the first time at the 2017 Jogja Volkswagen Festival (JVWF). *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MURIA NEWS | OTO DETIK | TRIBUNNEWS JOGJA]

Most unique classic wooden roadster

It's probably one of the most unique custom cars I've seen in that it isn't based on any particular car, and was actually built by a west-coast boat builder in 1959. Check it out, it looks like a cross between a rat rod, farm tractor, and so on. And according to VisualNews, the roadster was created based on the article in the September 1956 issue of Mechanix Illustrated magazine.
1959 All-Wooden Speedball Special Roadster. (Picture from: http://adf.ly/1YgBrd)
As reported by Hemmings Daily, the Standard Catalog, as faulty and full of holes as it is, actually has an entry on the Speedball Special. They have it listed as a 1956 Buckboard, though they note that "it may have been known as the Bruce or Bruce Buckboard." That would be because they say a Donald S. Bruce designed the car. They list the manufacturer as Automotive Associates Co. in White Plains, New York.

Here's the result: a modified version of the Speedball Special. The car is equipped with an impossibly rare 1952 Ariel Square Four motorcycle motorcycle engine and transmission and that the suspension was taken from a Citroen of the era, except lights, guages, etc., the rest was all hand fabricated.

A smooth-running four-cylinder 1,000 cc engine able to push out about 42 hp. That might not seem like much, but when driving the sequential four-speed and with a weight of only a mere 750 lbs this little wooden car has got to be a rocket. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | HEMMINGS DAILY | VISUALNEWS | JALOPNIK]

Other unique wooden scooters made in Indonesia

Among the many modifications to the scooter in the world, perhaps the scooters made of wood are the most unique. After the last article, we discussed the Vespa MP6 scooter replica made of wood waste by Eri Ashari
Two wooden scooters made by an Indonesian craftsman named Eri Ashari. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2E8S0Y8)
So on this occasion, what was discussed was still about the unique scooters made of wood and were the work of the other Indonesian wood craftsmen.
Jepara, a small city in Central Java which been known for a long time for the beauty of its wood carving. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2rA1sB4)
Now we head to a small city in Central Java named Jepara. This city has been known for a long time for the beauty of its wood carving. And it turns out that in the city we can also find the scooters made of teak wood. Let's take a look two of them:

1. 1973 Vespa Super by Ruli Wood Custom
This unique wooden scooter was built by a Jepara-based workshop named Ruli Wood Custom. This unique scooter was created after going through a fairly long work process, which is around 3 to 4 months and the 1973 Vespa Super scooter was used as the modification basic material
1973 Vespa scooter made of teak wood by Ruli Wood Custom shown off at the ISF 2017 in Yogyakarta. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2RMvyw1)
Although the scooter is not entirely made of wood, according to Ruli Krisnawan of Ruli Wood Custom if the whole body of the scooter is made of wood, so the potential for the broken of the body is very large, if happens will endanger its rider.
On some of the 1973 Vespa Super scooter's body parts were decorated with a beautiful Jepara carving. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2Pb7H7u)
Therefore the original body of the scooter is still used, then it layered with teak wood which then is carved. The chosen of the teak wood as the coating material for this scooter body, because this type of wood has good quality than another type of wood, and has an advantage is a beautiful texture as well.
The 1973 Vespa Super scooter's handlebar and mirrors were also decorated with a beautiful Jepara carving. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2Pb7H7u)
However, the scooter components or parts which are related to its driving system (like engine and rims), remain in the original condition are not replaced and not layered with teak wood as well.

2. A wooden replica of Lambretta LI 125 by Taufiq Qurrohman
Still from Jepara, a city in Central Java which is famous for its wood carving. Apparently, there is another wooden scooter is a replica of Lambretta LI 125 scooter made by a wood craftsman named Taufiq Qurrohman. Unlike the previous wooden scooters which only layered the original body of the Vespa scooter with teak wood, but the Taufiq-made scooter whole frame and body made of teak wood.

(Picture from: http://bit.ly/2LFEqjb)
According to the maker, the idea of ​​making the wooden scooter is his own idea and the entire frame and body are also made by him. Meanwhile, for mounting the engine to the vehicle frame, he got help from a mechanic. And the whole building process from the concept to completion and the scooter ready for use takes about nine weeks.

This unique wooden scooter uses automatic machines (but the names and types of machines are not mentioned), the use of this machine is intended to ease maintenance, comfortability when driving and can be used by anyone, including women.

All-wooden scooters mentioned above can function like other two-wheeled vehicles so that they can be used as vehicles on the highway, but so far it is not known yet whether those vehicles have the roadworthy permit from the authorities.

Before closing the article, there's another unique modified scooter made by an Indonesian scooter builder called Komando.
Kept spur your adrenaline on the power of the two-wheeled monster and stay alive with true safety riding. May God will forgive Your sins and so does the cops..... *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MOTOREXPERTZ | SURABAYA-KOMPAS]
