Great To Be Us: Sweet Handcarved Cars From Milano

to_be_us_cars.jpg

To be Us cars and such are designed by Matteo Ragni and handcarved by Master Giovanni out of a single block of Lebanese cedar. Then they're outfitted with mahogany wheels.

The windshield on Il Pick Up, which looks like it could fit the heel of your hand exactly, is almost as nice as the rear deck on La Sportiva. The sports car has some of the tastiness of the Ferrari 250 GTO by way of the Maserati GranTourismo.

To be Us is/will be available at the Spazio Rossana Orlandi in Milan. All's I can tell is, they cost more than EUR2,50.

I did find the YouTube video, which is actually kind of unexciting. -ed.]
