    Re: Wooden supercar?

    There were many aircraft made of wood, including the enormous Spruce Goose. More significant was the British Mosquito, a very successful effort from WW-II. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/De_Havilland_Mosquito
    This design seems to try to use appropriate wood technology on the inside but the exteriors are just the same old forms and shapes that would be more logical in metal or fiberglass.
    Doesn't Morgan have a wooden frame?

    Absolutely correct.
    What is amazing with the Mosquito is that it existed in a rapidly advancing engineering world of metal planes and was still one of the fastest, over 400mph with later variants. That's performance!
