Disintegrating by Fabian Oefner

while there are technologies out there that can afford artists and photographers opportunity to create mind-boggling photography techniques and effects, but there are none that can capture exploded view of a complex object such as a car, without the aid of CGI. however, Swiss photographer and artist Fabian Oefner succeed in doing the aforementioned in his Disintegrating series of exploded car photographs, which are described as “possibly the slowest high-speed images ever taken.” well, almost. the thing is, the car in the image (as with the rest in the series) you see above did not literally explode and they are not real cars either; they so model cars, which means car buffs can breathe a sigh of relief that no classic wheeled beauties were destroyed in the process, though we can’t say the same for model car enthusiasts. hey, you can’t please everyone, can you?

will the sixth generation pony rise above its competition? frankly, we don’t give a damn, cos’ as it is, the 2015 Ford Mustang is already a drool-worthy vehicle. of course, the pictured ride plays a part in our non-stop salivating syndrome as we go about writing up this article. the ride you see here is the top of the range 5.0-liter V8 GT model (see the badge there?), which will be offered alongside with two more ‘regular’ models, namely a 3.7-liter V6 variant with 300 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque, and an all-new fuel-efficient 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine that delivers 305 hp and a peak torque of 300 lb-ft. the GT is without doubt the one packed with all the love and affections (read: goodies), and an upgraded valvetrain and cylinder heads that yields over 420 ponies and 390 lb-ft of torque. there is also a new intake manifold which helps in modern day ride’s matters of concern, namely fuel economy, idle stability, as well as emissions.
