Deconstructed Formula 1 car is on display at Mercedes-Benz World in Surrey

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 7, 2011

Nick Fry, the CEO of the MERCEDES GP PETRONAS Formula One Team, unveiled the View Suspended II display at Mercedes-Benz World, Surrey, on March 3. Visitors of the brand experience centre alongside the Formula 1 exhibition can now view this stunning deconstructed art form of a Formula 1™ car.

The display is listed under the Grand Prix screening events scheduled for 2011. The display offers a whole new perspective to all the things that go into creating a modern day Formula 1 car.

The MERCEDES GP PETRONAS branded car consists of 3200 precision engineered components that Dutch artist Paul Veroude painstakingly arranged. What Veroude made is a captivating monument to the advanced-technology of Formula 1 that radically deconstructs the racing chassis.

No secrets can be kept as the chassis’ detailed systems and components are visible, from the large bodywork items such as the engine cover and floor to the details of the powertrain, including gear ratios and clutch plates.

The pieces are suspended individually, hung by wire from a purpose-made frame. The MERCEDES GP PETRONAS Formula One Team supplied the chassis and its associated components.

Mercedes-Benz HighPerformanceEngines supplied the engine. The structure combines engineering and sculpture, giving the viewers the most innovative and exciting way to study the Formula 1 car.
