Crews install MGM Rewards' F1 show car at the Bellagio Fountains ahead of Las Vegas Grand Prix


Ahead of the Las Vegas Grand Prix, crews have installed the MGM Rewards' F1 Show Car over the Winner's Stage at the Bellagio Fountain Club.

According to company officials, the show car is 80% carbon fiber and was built in the United Kingdom by F1 Authentics. It took about 300-man-hours for former Formula 1 engineers to manufacture the vehicle.

The vehicle was then transported to the valley where crews used cranes to put it on top of the Winner's Stage.
