Don't worry, a practically priceless Ferrari 330 P4 wasn't harmed in the making of these beautiful images by Swiss artist Fabian Oefner. But Oefner decided some models of great cars needed disassembling for the sake of making awesome photos with their pieces suspended in mid air. It's brilliant.
Part of the MB&F M.A.D. Gallery, Oefner painstakingly took apart detailed models of that Ferrari and a Jaguar E-Type for images in a series called "Disintegrating." After cutting the model cars apart, he sketched exactly where every piece that was in the car was going to go so that when photographed, it would give the impression of a car that was exploding.
He said it took almost two months to create one of these images.
Then there's this one called, "Hatch," which is a Ferrari 250 GTO bursting out of its shell, as a more dramatic way to describe a car's birth out of its clay skin. It's neat stuff.
