The striking exterior sports a matte black carbon-fiber body, and wings and doors hand-fashioned from a single sheet of pure copper polished to a mirror finish and left unprotected enabling it to patina over time. Inside, the winner will be cradled in a one-piece carbon-fiber tub out of which the seats are formed and look out over the dash constructed entirely of newspaper wood.
