Classic Sports Cars Exploding By Fabian Oefner

Aside from hitting pause at just the right moment during a movie, there’s usually no way to soak in the entire spectacle that is an exploding car–let alone an exploding 1961 Jaguar E-Type. But Swiss artist Fabian Oefner’s new art collection called ‘Disintegrating’ (currently on display at the MB&F M.A.D. gallery in Geneva), features immaculately handcrafted creations that showcase classic sports cars in the midst of an explosion.

Thanks to some very fine needles and string, the pieces appear to be in mid-flight. The Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR, and Ferrari 330 P4 are all captured at various stages of destruction, with every minute detail accounted for, thanks to Oefner’s meticulous method of photographing the parts and accurately spacing them, piece by tiny piece. It sure beats the pause button.
