Tobacco may have been banished from upper echelons of motorsport, but to look at this bizarre creation you'd think the mystical bond between the car and cigarettes is as strong as ever.

Chinese students created this Bugatti Veyron look-a-like out of 10,280 empty fag packets. It reportedly weighs around 300kg and is powered by a small electric motor.

It's rumoured to have been built to promote World No Smoking Day although frankly we're struggling to see the connection. All it's making us want to do is slip out of the office for 5 minutes. And buy a Veyron.
