Yngve Holen, a contemporary artist, ask to cut a Porsche Panamera in 4 pieces to use them in him artworks. The first exhibition in Basel Art Gallery was presented with the name of "Vertical Seat" (Kunsthalle Basel 13.5 - 14.08.2016).
To make the cut Jan Van Gils from Wodiam (Diamond Pauber reseller for Belgium) suggest to his customer Rik Storms to use the steel cutting diamond wire LSR-S 8 45 manufactured by Diamond Pauber,
LSR-S 8 45 is special tapered shape eletroplated diamond wire used to cut many different steel objects. This diamond wire was choosen for its 9,4mm diameter to make a fast cut and to save as much part as possible due its reduced diameter.
Stefano Bernieri, CEO at Diamond Pauber, followed personally the cut to be sure the machine could be cut in the best way.
"It was amazing to see the diamond wire cut trough the front window without crack it, The LSR-S diamond wire is the most advanced we produce and the most sharpened. It's like a scalpel" (Stefano Bernieri)
The job was completed in three days and the car was cut in 4 piece.
This Panamera 4 was the first luxury car cut with a diamond wire
