We’ve seen parents go above and above for their kids, especially when it comes to getting them fancy toys.

If their kids are interested in cars, they get the best toy cars available in the market. However, in Vietnam, a father was determined to be in a league of his own. For his son, Mr. Truong Van Dao, a professional woodworker, designed a fully functional wooden electric Lamborghini Sian Roaster.

Mr. Truong posted a photo recently on Facebook wherein he was standing near the car and giving over what appears to be a remote control to his son.

The car appears to be completely original, but it is built of wood and has the sleek design and sharpness of a Lamborghini that we have seen roaring past us on the roads.

The appearance of the car shows the effort and time that went into the creation of this unique wooden Lamborghini. It took Mr. Truong 65 days to build the “first open-top hybrid Lamborghini super sports car” which is powered by a supercapacitor, according to sources. The car is made of discarded trees and is driven by a small electric motor capable of reaching speeds of up to 25 kilometers per hour.

Mr. Truong began by constructing a platform, placing the wheels on it, and enabling it to move using a battery and an electric motor. He then moved on to creating the bonnet, side panels, doors, etc. While it appeared to be simpler at first, highlighting the car’s details took the most time. From the front grill to the crisp lines on those scissor doors that are unique to Lamborghini, as well as the positioning of LED lighting both front and back.

This Lamborghini Sian Roaster, on the other hand, is one of Mr. Truong’s most recent creations. He has also made small versions of Bugatti and BMW cars in the past. A replica of Bugatti that this talented woodworker designed is one-third the size of the original but looks great.
