The Puma Race Car is Entirely Made Out of Clothing

The Puma race car is a car you can’t sit in, touch or drive because it is made out of clothes—1,682 T-shirts, 88 pairs of jeans, 64 pairs of shoes and 31 belts, to be exact.

All together, the apparel used in the 14-foot Puma race car cost almost $64,000 USD, while the construction took five hours and eight employees. Modeled after the Formula One driver Kimi Raikkonen’s race car which is a Ferrari (as Puma is the Ferrari team’s official clothing sponsor), the Puma race car is displayed at the Puma Carnaby Street shop in London.
