As much as we love the roadgoing rallycars from Subaru and Mitsubishi, it's because of the way they drive, not necessarily for their handsome silhouettes. But beauty is, as they say, in the eye of the keyholder. Artist Benedict Radcliffe, head of experimental design at the Glasgow consultancy Stand
, fashioned this wireframe outline of a Subaru WRX as an objet d'art. It sits outside the Paul Smith gallery
on Albemarle Street in
London, England (Thanks, Tony). And showing they have no love of fine art, the local constabulary has repeatedly ticketed the offending vehicle
. Tickets are alternately written out to The Invisible Man or Wonder Woman, apparently. Well, it does
take up a parking space, but come on guys. We remember seeing VW Beetles with intricate ironwork "bodies" in place of traditional panels, but this is a bit more extreme. It actually looks like a styling buck at first glance, but click here
to see that it is indeed the real deal.
