It is set to be sold off this week as part of a charity auction during the 47th Annual Scottsdale Auction by Barrett-Jackson with the proceeds to benefit three different veterans' organizations.

The fully-electric log roadster is a 240-year-old cedar resting on the chassis of a Mazda RX-8 with custom suspension and two large turbines mounted on either side of the rear fin. It weighs a whopping 2,200 pounds and was manufactured entirely with renewable and recyclable materials.

  This Keyed Lamborghini Huracan Avio Is Hard To Look At This is why we can’t have nice things. Owning and driving a supercar comes with some additional responsibilities separate from the expensive oil changes and general maintenance. Drive a supercar through a neighborhood of car-obsessed, internet-connected millennials, and there will be a swarm of smartphones eagerly recording video and snapping photos for instant upload to the internet. This could cause a bit of a traffic snarl, but more often than not intentions are relatively benign.

In 2016, the "Pioneer Cedar Rocket" set a Guinness World Record for being the fastest motorized log car, reaching a top speed of 47.64 mph on the set of HGTV's Timber Kings at the Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, Arizona.

The car was designed by Bryan Reid Sr., founder of Pioneer Log Homes (and one of the stars of Timber Kings), with his longtime friend Louis Horschel.

Reid told the Williams Lake Tribune in a recent interview that he wouldn't be sad to give up the Cedar Rocket.

"It’s an honour to give it up," Reid said. "It’s exciting to see it go for such a good cause. That is what is was originally designed for, that’s why I went to some of the most high profile shows in North America with it. Pioneer doesn’t need the advertising, we’ve got all the work we can handle."

The company thinks the coupe could reach a 249-mph top speed. Until recent auctions brought them back to the spotlight, the Bugatti EB 110 was a nearly forgotten supercar of the 1990s. Now, Casil Motors has created a semi-revival with its SP-110 Edonis Fenice by putting a new body and upgraded mechanicals on top of some of the EB 110's remaining carbon fiber monocoques. The firm will limit production to just 15 units.
