Watch – An extremely talented woodworker from Vietnam carved out an all-electric drivable Ferrari 250 GTO in just 70 days


Vietnamese YouTuber Trương Văn Đạo popularity has skyrocketed over the last year thanks to his unique creations handcrafted out of wood. A few months back, the master craftsman created a mini version of the Bugatti Centodieci out of wood for his son. This time around, Đạo took up the challenge to create a mini replica of the world’s most expensive car – the Ferrari 250 GTO. Only 36 examples of the iconic Ferrari were made and it’s the most sought-after classic car amongst collectors. In 2018, chassis number 4153GT was sold for $70 million in a private sale, setting a new sale record.

Đạo uploaded a video on his ND – Woodworking channel on YouTube last weak that captures the whole process from start to finish of building the 250 GTO replica. According to him, the project took him 70 days to complete. It starts with simply searching for the world’s most expensive car on the internet and downloading pictures of the legendary Ferrari model. The Vietnamese craftsman then begins with building a frame for the replica with steel tubes. He then adds the front and rear axles that are mounted on proper suspension.

After getting the underpinnings sorted, Đạo attaches wooden slabs of different shapes and sizes that are then hand-shaped with basic tools like a chainsaw, angle grinder, and chisels. Replicating the curvaceous bodywork of the Ferrari 250 GTO using nothing but wood is an unbelievably difficult job. Even the Ferrari logo is made from wood. Unlike Đạo’s previous creations, the miniature Ferrari 250 GTO is fitted with proper road tires. It’s is also powered by an electric motor mounted on the rear axle, making the wooden Ferrari fully functional. The mini Ferrari by Đạo could be a very good alternative to the Bugatti Baby II. Even though the wooden Ferrari is nowhere close to being perfect, but the craftsmanship is undeniably great.
