Chinese university students build KIRF Bugatti Veyron all-electric vehicle from discarded cigarette packs (video)


In order to raise awareness of the dangers of smoking (or to make cigarettes look even cooler -- we're not sure which) a group of five students at Xi'an University in China have built an all-electric Bugatti Veyron entirely out of old cigarette boxes. This bad boy is the same size as the world-renowned touring car -- a feat which took 10,280 packs of cigarettes and eight months to assemble. While we have no idea what the top speed is, we're guessing it's nowhere near that of the original. Check out the video after the break.
