This Wooden V12 Ferarri Engine Won't Get You Very Far

It's gorgeously intricate and a hefty 23kg, but don't expect this hand-carved engine to do more than impress your friends. That's OK, though - at $US6000 on eBay, it's probably the closest to Ferarri ownership you'll get.

The entire model, based on a Ferrari 365GTB V12 engine, is hand-crafted from wooden pieces - and the attention to detail is truly stunning. [eBay via Boing Boing]
