A life-size Formula 1 race car made in styrofoam

Styrofoam creations have been a fad amid designers. We’ve seen styrofoam used to construct the Optiumus Styro, the styrofoam lad, a 21-feet tall robot and just recently we saw the DIY styrofoam turntable. All of them have been best in their own unique ways, but on the very first glance of it this morning, this Michael Salter designed life-size Formula 1 race car out of styrofoam was something that on the very outset shot to the top in the ranks. If that had an engine to run, I am sure Schumacher would have definitely wanted to ride it through the circuit (yes, he has retired, but such is the striking feature of this creation that it could even get him back). Along with the full-scale replica of the F1 car, shown at the Portland John Ross Plaza Studio, are other styrofoam creations from Michael Salter; are you game to see them all?

More pictures of the race car after the jump, I know you wouldn't wanna miss them.
