Over the years, the design of vehicles, both internal and external, has evolved considerably. Today, consumers have a lot of choices, and if you have a thing for wooden designs, there are plenty of cars for sale in Abu Dhabi for you to choose from. Here are some of the top picks compiled by CarSwitch.com.
The Traveller was introduced in 1953. It was actually the estate variant of Morris Minor that had been launched five years ago. It was initially named the Mosquito, but the name was changed right before the vehicle’s debut. The rear body of the ride got an external ash wood frame and it featured two side-hinged back doors.
The main framework of the Traveller was manufactured at the company’s Cowley facility, while the wooden rear part was assembled in Coventry. Both parts were subsequently transferred to the MG factory that was located at Abingdon for full assembly.
The Bentley Bentayga is in a league of its own, not just because of the smooth performance, but also the clever combination of carbon fiber, wood, and leather on the inside. The steering wheel is wrapped in leather and wood, while the rest of the car is heavy on carbon fiber. All the leather you see inside is hand-stitched. The end result is visually appealing and gives you the best of both worlds. And it’s not just about the aesthetics as the car also features storage with biometric authentication, which means your belongings will be safe inside.
The Volvo S90 features two kinds of wood. First is Linear Walnut and the other is Flame Birch, which is a type of wood that’s only available in Nordic countries. It has been given a glossy coat and dark tint for a more modern touch. Volvo says that the panels are manually selected and the grain is book-matched, which means two veneers are cut from the same piece of wood to make a symmetrical pattern.
Other than the linear walnut wood inlays, Nappa soft leather upholstery with ventilated and heated front seats, and a 4-zone electronic climate control setup also makes the interior impressive.
The Splinter is a wooden supercar. Everything is about wood, including the exterior, which is made of woven cherry skins, the front suspension, which is laminated wood, and the chassis, which is a laminated wood veneer monocoque. Overall, 90 percent of the car is believed to be made of wood. Inside is a 700-horsepower V8 engine which is mated with a six-speed manual transmission.
The car weighs around 1,360 kg and since it’s made of wood, it apparently has a better strength-to-weight ratio when compared to steel and aluminium.
