A video has emerged on the internet of a scale model of the Bugatti Centodieci carved out of wood.
Bugatti will build just 10 examples of the Chiron-based Centodieci with prices starting at $9.7 million a pop, meaning very few will ever have the opportunity to see one in the flesh. A Centodieci model made from wood is even rarer.
The entire bodywork of the kid-sized Bugatti Centodieci has been made using oak wood. The person in the video is identified as Nong and he hails from Vietnam. Nong built the wooden Bugatti himself as a toy for his son.
The 17-minute video details the entire build process of the car, starting out with the wooden chassis before the craftsman behind this stunning creation cuts the wheels and carves them with simple hand tools.
Work is then done on the propulsion system which takes the form of a small electric motor powering the rear wheels.
Mr. Nong took 40 days to build the car from scratch and used tools like chainsaws and chisels to craft the bodywork. It might not be the most detailed scale replica, but the craftsmanship is truly jaw-dropping, especially when you consider that the curvy body of a Bugatti is incredibly difficult to replicate using a material like wood.
But design elements like the horseshoe grille, the Bugatti logo, the leadlight design, and even the steering wheel have been carved out in wood.
What’s even more interesting is that it is a fully-working model with an electric motor for propulsion and two batteries to power the car.
The master craftsman behind the Bugatti even documented the entire process of creating the wooden Bugatti on his YouTube channel. Have a look at the video; you’ll be in awe of this tiny Bugatti.
