If you ever wondered how a Ferrari 330 P4
would look if it suffered a massive crash in deep space, today is your lucky
This is a photograph by Swiss artist
Fabian Oefner, part of his ‘Disintegrating' series that imagines Ferrari's V12
endurance racer exploded in delicious zero gravity. And oh, isn't it beautiful?
Fear not, Oefner didn't take an
angle-grinder to a P4 (not least, presumably, because they're not exactly easy
to come by nor cheap: only three were ever made). Instead he disassembled a
detailed model of the 1967 Daytona 24 Hour winner, photographing each piece
separately before ‘rebuilding' the P4 in the style of a Haynes manual.
The effect is oddly hypnotic, and rather
less upsetting than the last priceless exotic we saw destroyed.
We love it. Take a look at the video of
Oefner's making of his stunning photos and tell us: what classic car would you
like to see scattered into a thousand beautiful pieces?
