This VW Beetle Is Made Almost Entirely Out Of Wood

What you are about to see is a Bosnian creation. A man named Momir Bojic, along with his (we're assuming) extremely patient wife, has spent a few years building the ultimate wooden skin for his classic VW Beetle.

50,000. That's how many finger-sized, carefully sculpted pieces of oak he made to layer onto the car.

There actually are a few visible parts that aren't wood, like the brake lights and headlights, but that's about it.

He's even done the interior in wood. That does include the pedals, somehow. Also, note the guy's hat.

As a finishing touch, and to give the car some longevity, he varnished it once he finished the last piece of wood. It appears to have worked: the wood skin is now seven years old, judging by the rings around the tires. No, really, it's seven years old.
