One of the most exclusive models from the German luxury marque is the Bugatti Chiron-based Centodieci, where the company plans to manufacture only 10 units. The price of each of these limited models is set at $9.7 million (₦3.69b). By implication, only a fragment of the world’s population will be able to buy and also witness one in the flesh.
An artist Masterfully Crafted a Miniature Bugatti Centodieci from wood
While the original version is set to be very rare, the wooden version created recently by YouTuber ND - Woodworking Art, is also not something you come across every day. This artist has long years of experience in using wood to carve out real-life vehicles. The difference between this particular creation and the original version is the size. This one looks more suitable for children.

Luckily, the YouTuber shared with us a 17-minute video, showing every step used in creating this masterpiece. The craftsman started off with the wooden chassis, before cutting the wheels and carving them with basic hand tools. He went on to finish work on the propulsion system, which acts as a mini electric motor, supplying power to the rear wheels.

Wood Carving - CR7's Bugatti Centodieci - ND WoodWorking Art
Since the mini wooden Bugatti Centodieci is up and running, the craftsman proceeded to the more complex part of the build, which was to make the entire bodywork from wood. We could attribute this difficulty to the kind of work Bugatti put into this model to make it distinct from the regular Chiron model.
The YouTuber was able to use his small chainsaw to mimic the complete bodywork of the Centodieci, before making use of a hammer and a chisel to do the finishing touches on its shape. Undoubtedly, the wooden carved model was done beautifully to the extent that it even offers a functional cabin, carved from wood.
