Yes, the F50 in Vegas, now I need somebody to make a wooden world so I can put my wooden engine in my wooden F50 and drive it in a wooden world

Outstanding

And that version of a wood tribute does it well.

Tell us more. Like, what are those coils made of? I see no seams such.
and

PS: IS this that wood world you might want ?

Grannuci - The coils are spring metal, one of the few non-wood items on the engine. Pretty much everything on the engine is wood, including the manifold and the "bolts", even the Ferrari logo on the side is carve out of wood. Its a life size engine, the wood used are mostly oak and weight about 30kg.
lol - nice wooden world.
The person who made this made a small size engine as a model before making the big one. The model is pretty amazing, its about 40 cm long with pretty much all the details except for the manifold.

Brian_brice - unfortunately I do not have the talent to make something like this. The manifold broke on its way to me and I'm having trouble repairing that so...

Amazing: So, you commissioned this piece? Great that someone did and glad you posted it here.

Guessing to have the coils done in wood was over the top. Hope the manifolds work out ok.

FINAL Q: Do the bold actually screw in? and are there pistons in there?

lol - no the bolts are not screw in...that would be too much work and unnecessary. Unfortunately, no piston either. Believe it or not, someone have asked me if it works...lol

I'm sure they meant in a not combustion engine way, like in moving parts.

I was wondering that too, if the inners were done, BUT, if they had, I'm sure you would have posted it.

Nice art. I am still amazed at the detail.

How will it be displayed?
