Fancy cars made with reclaimed wood

Just because you pay a lot for a car doesn’t mean it actually came from the ‘finest ingredients’ available. Your fancy new car may very well be made of reclaimed materials these days. The most recent installment in this trend showed up in Pininfarina’s 2012 Cambiano. The car’s reclaimed wood interior design made its first appearance at the Geneva auto show in 2012. Wondering what other life the wood interior lead before ending up in the car? Apparently all of it comes from old ‘barber poles’ found in Venice, Italy.
