What you see here is the exhaust manifold from David Coulthard’s RB2 that competed in the 2006 F1 season. What used to be a just a very light piece of a racing car becomes a piece of art on its own.
The exhaust manifolds are part of Racing Gold’s “PART of the team” collection, where in collaboration with Red Bull, they turn race-used F1 parts into manufactured art for anybody to purchase.
Photographer Richard Pardon used LEDs on the chromed RB2 manifold to create a sort of futuristic ‘blueprint’ effect and sparklers/fountain candles to try and re-create what it would look like as if you could see it running.
