The story behind Fast Beautiful Dangerous

This is the Mercedes CLR racing car which had flipped over three times at Le Mans in 1999. So hence it was given the title – ‘fast beautiful dangerous.’ One of the most common subjects in photorealist paintings are cars. However, they are usually rendered without any people in the picture – I have shown a propensity for doing things with my own style. Here the Mercedes CLR racing car is surrounded by many people – drivers, officials, and mechanics.

Mark Webber will remember this car quite well – he performed two separate backflips in one of these Mercedes CLR’s.
