People say that art comes in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes, it comes in the form of vehicles as well, especially for some who consider classic cars as ‘pieces of art’. Today, we’re looking at a combination of both with the exploded view of a 1972 Lamborghini Miura SV. And yes if you’re wondering, the artist used an actual Miura SV in order to create this mesmerizing set of photos.
The exploded view Lamborghini is the work of Swiss artist and photographer Fabian Oefner, who previously created exploded view photos of scale model vehicles as part of his ‘Disintegrating’ series of photos. Disintegrating X would be the first time Oefner would work on an actual, physical car.
In order to create the photo, he decided to document nearly every part and component that makes up the Miura, from the panels down to the smallest nuts and bolt. As for the Miura, it was owned by Oefner’s friend who gave him free reign to photograph every part of the vehicle as it was being restored at Lamborghini’s plant in Sant’Agata, Italy. Based on the color of the vehicle, it is likely the same Miura SV that recently completed restoration and is owned by FIA president Jean Todd.
The final images took Oefner two years to complete and is composed from over 1,500 separate images stitched together to create one big photo of an ‘exploding’ Miura SV. Disintegrating X is currently on display at the MB&F M.A.D. Gallery in Dubai with limited run prints available.
To see how the project was done, Lamborghini released a video which you can watch above.
