A retired cabinet maker in central France has handbuilt a wooden 2CV Citroen Car... which is about to pass its first technical inspection.
The car, built as an exact one to one replica to the famed Citroen 2CV, was put together over six years by retiree Michel Robillard.
 
It was made in a Touraine fruitwood and is considered to be unique in the world.
 
And it's fully equipped to take the road. 

Robillard has said he hopes the vehicle will one day go on display in an art gallery. 
 
Check it out.
