Chococar! My kind of race car

Chocolate racing car
My, I forgot to put up this photo, taken a month ago outside Carousel, Royal Plaza on Scotts. A racing car made completely out of chocolate!

It took four artists over 44 days to design this, and 8 chefs working 7 days and nights to craft this. The car is almost lifesize at 4.7m long and 2m wide. They used 90kg of chocolate - white, dark and milk chocolate (even the wheels and hubs are coated with edible black and silver powder).

Cost? $25,000 (currency not stipulated, I presume it's S$).

The F1 racing fever is reaching some heights in Singapore now, with lots of racing simulations and model cars on displays. But I still don't have a good feeling about it - like some accident is going to happen - cos our roads are simply not designed for races. Perhaps I'm not the only one with the jitters. It seems the seats aren't sold out yet. Well, they haven't even finished building the seating areas, so close to the event. At any rate, I'm avoiding town for the duration of the event!


  1. Sure or not; No ants or pest crawling here and chocolate wont melt. However, it's for real and it looks good enough to sit in. Ha, I passed by on Monday without realising that it's choco.

  2. i don't think its solid chocolate, probably chocolate coating over some frame. i wonder what happens to it after the whole F1 craze is over... it will be nice to have a bite. lol

  3. Yeah, I think it's more like a chocolate lacquer.

  4. Looks almost too good to eat. Almost... ;)

  5. Yeah, it's probably just chocolate coated, not solid chocolate. Well, 90kg isn't that much actually. Still, if this car came crashing into me, I wouldn't mind. Death by chocolate! :D

  6. can i pinch some bits off?
    the chocolate wheels are begging me to eat it. LOL

  7. Wow! That is Cooool!
    We sell some model chocolate cars in our shop - but that beats them all hands down ;)
    If only I had a spare $25,000 lying around....

  8. Hi Camemberu,

    I am planning to write a post on what I consider to be the most original September food photos. I will be posting the 10 photos on Culinarty (my blog) with a link back to the authors. This is actually the fifth edition of "10 Original Food Photos". I really like your chococar pic and I would very much like to include it in my post. Would that be ok with you? Please let me know.

  9. Hi Lore, yes, by all means. Nice of you to ask. I'd be honored if you could include the photo. I'll add you to my blogroll too.

  10. Thank you so much for agreeing to this and for including me in your blogroll, I do appreciate it!
