No Longer works!
The Car is potentially the fastest vehicle in the game. Although you can't craft it like regular vehicles, you can build it! This simple creation uses just four windows and a foliage thatch. You can make other styles of the car using resources such as wheat and planks, but that requires a bit more effort and the increased weight would cause it to be slower.
Since this is a bit more advanced than clicking a single button under the craft menu... I made a video to demonstrate how the car is built and used. Enjoy!
