"postercar" shots that are actually worth printing on a poster! (Not something we see here all that often!) Very nice work!

He did not knock the whole forum, just most of it :p

I like all of them except the flare shot


Don't try to confuse me with the facts, my mind is already made up.

Truth hurts, but hey, thats also just my opinion :)

The shots are def. poster worthy, great light, composition, and exposure.

I actually got the chance to drive one of these. Very stiff clutch, the gear shift lever is something you would use to launch a fighter jet off an air craft carrier, but that flat-12 is astonishing at the far end when you open it up.

Exactly! The clutch was quite heavy, but the bite point was long so it was super easy to operate. I took off without touching the accelerator the first time. The gearshift was the most difficult thing about driving that car. Notchiest gearbox I've ever experienced, and you have to revmatch pretty closely if you want it to go in. This meant a lot of double clutching, and slow gearchanges. Anyone who can drive this car fast is pretty damn talented, IMO.

It's really the sound and the aura of this car that make it worthwhile.
