The Honda Racing F1 Car Installation

Posted on February 17, 2007. Filed under: Engineering, F1 |

View Suspended’ is a stunning art installation created from the thousands of parts that make up a Honda F1 Racing car. 

The amazing display was created especially for the event by Dutch artist Paul Veroude. Each of the 3200 parts of the Formula 1 car are suspended on fine wires to produce a 3D ‘exploded diagram’ that allows race fans the chance to get closer than ever to the engineering secrets of the world’s most technically-advanced sport.

Honda first recognised Veroude’s talents two years ago, when Artwise Curators, who develop art projects with the Honda team, came across a museum exhibition of his deconstructed vehicles. Paul then got his first opportunity to get close up and personal with a Honda Racing F1 car during a visit to Silverstone. His passion for the sport and the Honda Racing F1 Team’s engineering expertise catalyzed a very special work of art.

Honda’s Head of Car Marketing, Jeff Dodds says: “The first time we saw ‘View Suspended’, we knew it would be perfect for the London Motor Show. It’s creative, imaginative and a must see for visitors to the Honda stand. I can’t think of a better expression of Honda’s passion for F1 and engineering.”
