Working Bugatti Veyron Built with 10,000 Empty Cigarette Packs

Cobbled together from thousands of empty cigarette packs, this electric-powered vehicle puts the "car" in carcinogen.

Looking suspiciously like something the China National Tobacco Corporation would commission as part of an advertising campaign, the Bugatti Veyron-style auto is actually meant to discourage smoking. The English-language version of the People's Daily offers the following explanation:

"To make a dramatic statement for this year's World No Tobacco Day [...], 22-year-old Xi'an sophomore Sun Yonggan and his four roommates made an anti-smoking sports car from discarded cigarette cases. Surprisingly, the eco-friendly car is the same size as a real car and weights 300 kilograms [660 pounds]. What's more, it actually runs."
