Ever wondered what automakers do with full-size clay models after the styling has been approved? We found this video that demonstrates one of the more colourful methods of destroying a clay model once it’s no longer needed.

The video is time-lapsed to show how three ax-wielding men progress as they hack away at the clay and foam beneath until it all slides off the rolling chassis of the Jaguar XF. Fortunately none of the axes slip during the process.

Enjoy the video!
