Rolls-Royce's handcrafted masterpiece, the Boat Tail, held the title of the world's most expensive car until last year, with a whopping price tag of $$ 28 million. And while few of us can even dream of owning it, some can build our own out of wood. Like this guy here.
If you're not familiar with the ND Woodworking Art YouTube channel, take the time to check it out. The Vietnamese artist behind it makes some of the finest wooden cars, and they can be driven too. Created, they are scaled down and battery powered, but even so, you have to appreciate the assiduous work that goes into building them.
Motivated by his son, with whom he started this hobby, he managed to reach more than 600,000 subscribers. He has some really iconic kid-sized wheeled vehicles in his portfolio, like a Lamborghini Sian, BMW 328 Hommage, Ferrari 250 GTO, to name just a few. Oh, and a wooden tank, inspired by the World of Tanks (WoT) video game.
ND Woodworking Art's latest build is this stunning version of Boat Tail, a project he posted in two parts, as it's a longer and more challenging project.
Just like all his other masterpieces, the Rolls-Royce Boat Tail was also built for his son, who is probably the envy of his kindergarten classmates for having the coolest toys ever. And just like his other videos, this one went viral immediately, with viewers calling the car pure art and the craftsman a genius.
ND Woodworking Art is not the only one paying homage to the tail of the boat. You might also want to check out the “King of Crafts”, although that one is made from leftovers and cardboard. But it's also drivable, with working doors, steering wheel, engine, brakes, gas pedal, the whole package. The cardboard Rolls-Royce Boat Tail can go over 30 mph (50 km/h), according to its builder.
