Diamond-studded tires by Cooper celebrate 75 years of the British Formula 3 Championships

While that mystery hasn’t been put on public display yet, you can however find out how a bejeweled tyre comes to life.

The diamonds and Swarovski crystals were placed using a Cooper logo template, which was then manually stuck to the tires once at a time with a strong adhesive, forming the name of the company. The ready tyres where then bolted on to the Carlin driver, Rupert Svendsen–Cook’s car.
