Here's the latest cutaway painting at Motor City Garage from your very own Tony Matthews, the game-changing Penske shock.

On the Penske car thread, the word jewelry came up. Check out this exquisite detail:

Now thats a nice drawing Tony. You really sold it to me there.

But why is it black on the inside?

Because that's the colour it was. The body was hard anodised black and (if I recall correctly) finish honed (because hard anodising typically leaves an abrasive surface finish which obviously is not desirable in this application).

I thought it was going to be hard to beat the Ilmor 265B drawing for something that rewards repeated viewing but I think this one might do it.
