Most of what you see, including fan and fan housing, is hand sanded/polished magnesium or aluminum. Feed pipe, turbo to boost relieve valve assembly, and CIS air intake horn are steel/chromed
The good news: It looks cool.
The bad news: Raw polished magnesium will oxidize before your eyes in a high moisture environment. Caught in a rainstorm once, all the magnesium instantly turned white. 4-polishing hours later . . . . (it really helps to be retired).
