This one was driven by Mika Hakkinen in 1999. Very impressive. But what do these things look like if you blow them up. I mean deconstruct them? They look like this:

  • It’s got 3,200 bits
  • It takes 290,000 man hours to make one – start to finish
  • It weighs 600 kilos
  • This creation is by Paul Veroude, a Dutch artist
