Snag this full-size teak car for just $20k

The eBay listing claims that a group of woodcarvers completed the piece—which does not have an engine, unlike the new wooden supercar that took five years to build—and months of work went into it. The wood used is teak, and despite having no engine, the seller claims that the steering works on a rolling chassis.

This car is essentially an adult-sized childhood dream, but it comes with a not-so-childish listing of about $19,771. But there’s a catch—the seller is only shipping to the United Kingdom, where the item currently sits. That’s a downer.

Read the rest here, with lots of additional photos:

Interesting that the car is based in the UK but is left hand drive.

...and unlike a real Jag, you don't even have to pretend that you will one day get it running and keep it running.
