The Le Nguyen Khang 'Achilles' car is a wooden delicacy. It is a Vietnamese automobile created out of high-quality lumber that cruises down the streets of Ho Chi Minh city.

Le Nguyen Kang's vehicle is made of ash, xylia xylocarpa and walnut. It weighs 1.5 tons and uses imported BMW parts to run. It can go up to 60 kilometers per hour. The idea for the car was prompted by a conversation with an English friend who was asking Kang about his Binh Duong wood processing business. The Le Nguyen Khang Achilles vehicle is finely crafted with engravings of light wooden dragons, turtles and other traditional emblems that represent nobility and beauty. It is named after the Grecian warrior known for his role in the Trojan War. Stats for Mythical Wooden Vehicles Trending: Older & Mild
