One of my favorite things about auto shows are the cutaways. Even as a kid I gravitated towards the cut up engine bits, all polished and exposed, it was a textbook come to life. You could see exactly where and how things connected, what they did and how they interacted with other systems. It’s nerdy, sure, but it’s also awesome. (Plus, it’s a cool thing to force engineering interns to do with spare parts.)
Sauber has upped the ante with this, a cutaway of a “old” F1 car. The project took two years to complete by actual F1 engineers in their downtime. Chief Designer Matt Morris walks you through this one after the jump and driver Sergio Perez even does some modeling.
