Wooden Ferrari V12 Engine

Check it. A life-size Ferrari V12 engine, made entirely of wood!

The 1:1 model is a replica of a V12 365GTB.

Even from the pictures, you can see the intricate details of each part and the amount of work an Australian carpenter-cabinetmaker put into this project. It weighs only 25 Kg, and you can clinch it on eBay for just over $6,000 US.

It was built by zoombie-oz, from Australia, at least that's his eBay user name.

The engine is featured in tomsguide.

Here's a picture of the real Ferrari 365 GTB, pretty damn cool.

Crazy huh? I mean who would build want to put all that time in building one of these engines... well I found another nut bar who does. Bill Dietz of Moss Landing California made this beauty. Actually he made 12 and sold them on eBay as well. These puppies are a replica of the Ferrari V12 365GTB/4 Daytona.

Each engine took Bill 400 hours to build, over a 3 year period. For more on Bill's work, check hackedgadgets.

Bill used Philippine Mahogany to make the block and Teak, Birch, Walnut and Hawaiian Koa (just to name a few of the woods) for the other parts. Ya, totally whacked!

In spite of the engines likeness to the real thing... I guess the last thing you'd want to do is fire it up!
