Joe Harmon Design is building the Splinter, a (mostly) wood super-car:

We are building a high-performance, mid-engined supercar from wood composites as a graduate project at North Carolina State University. Wood will be used whereever possible, including the chassis, body, and large percentages of the suspension components and wheels. The car has a target weight of 2500lbs and a power goal of over 600 horsepower.

I believe that perhaps this is based upon an Amish design
