Car Art Done Right: Mercedes Shows Off Deconstructed F1 Cars at Brand Center

Rather than have its prestigious Formula 1 racecars merely sit in its museums, Mercedes-Benz thought it best to hang them by thousands of threads at its Mercedes-Benz World center.

The innovative art was created by Dutch artist Paul Veroude and displays around 3200 car parts on individual wires. According to Mercedes officials, the View Suspended II exhibition allows visitors to see in great detail the 90,000 hours of design work and over 200,000 hours of manufacturing that goes into every multi-million dollar masterpiece.

If you’re wondering, the 2010-spec cars aren’t exact replicas, but are a good representation of what an F1 machine is, Mercedes says. Each has in its belly a F0108W 2.4-liter V-8 engine that makes 750 horsepower and is limited to a staggering 18,000 rpm.

This is one art show we’d never get tired of.
