Cut-A-Way Car Displays

December 6, 2016 in American / Cutaway Pictures / English / French / German / Italian / Japanese / Race Car

Since we featured Shin Yoshikawa’s awe inspiring cut-a-way car drawings a few weeks ago (http://www.carbuildindex.com/22153/part-3-shin-yoshikawas-cutaway-drawing-and-book/), we thought that it might be interesting to take a look at actual, full scale cut-a-way cars. The use of cut-a-way car displays is a tradition that automobile manufacturers have been practicing for decades since the early days of auto shows. When we see them we always find it interesting to do a walk around and hope that some deeper understanding of automobile’s intricate mechanical workings will somehow be willed upon us while we blankly gaze at them trying to figure them out. Unfortunately that never seems to happen and then the best we can do is resort to imagining a good hand car washing rather than wrenching. In any case, continue on the next page for a look at the attached cut-a-way cars exposed in all of their naked glory for your own personal viewing pleasure, whether it’s for washing or wrenching purposes, or possibly even both if you are so inclined…

2015 Corvette Z06 Cutaway Display

September 13, 2016 in American / Cutaway Pictures

Being the car nerds that we are, we are always fascinated at looking at the inner workings of cars when they are apart so we can see what really makes them tick other than our right foot and lazy steering inputs. We have previously done a few features here in the past which showcased cutaway drawings, but what’s better than an actual car that has been dissected wide open like that poor frog you had to cut open back in high school for Biology class? Autoblog.com took it upon themselves to be the professor in this case and highlight all of the engineering marvels showcased in the new 2015 Corvette Z06 that was on display at the Detroit Auto Show just a few days ago. Rather than high jack their own tutorial, we have included a link to it at the bottom of the next page. Some of the more standout features of the car include 15.5 inch carbon front brakes, carbon fiber torque tube and driveshaft, and a 6.2 liter supercharged LT4 engine producing “at least” 625 hp and 635 ft lb of torque along with an 8 speed transmission. Enjoy.

Part 3: Shin Yoshikawa’s Cutaway Drawings and Book

February 5, 2014 in American / Cutaway Drawings / Cutaway Pictures / English / French / German / Italian / Japanese / Race Car

As promised from this last weekend’s previous 2 part profile of Shin Yoshikawa and Studio Time Capsule, we now bring to you his incredibly talented cutaway drawings on the following page, along with details on how to order your own prints, too. Information on his book about the Toyota 2000GT, which he is an expert of, is included as well. After looking at his amazing sketches, it appears that he is an expert in far more than just that one model of car. We are on a Shin high at the moment ourselves, and plan on ordering one of each of his limited edition t-shirts before they run out. Find examples of his intricately detailed artwork on the following page…
