Uhhh... Night club dancing... coordinated?? I take it you haven't been in some time ...harmonious unified motion is not exactly something you witness there. It's just massive disorderly chaos. Other than that faux pas, great article

Do a post on rigshots (although its not something I see practiced on SH much and maybe a bit played out but still interesting to get people excited about it again) or Photoshop techniques like High-key processing or the Brenizer technique.

Please educate me: is Mizuno Works owned or related in some way to Mizuno-san the former R35 GTR lead designer/chief engineer?

Love that shot of the FT1 door. Never seen that angle! But as you mention it just highlights how much of a design exercise the current concept is. If it does go into production I hope they save as many bold design cues as they can such as the flared roof DLO edges that stick out above the side windows or the aggressive diffuser detail. Heck even the mirrors would be welcome just because theyre so GT by Citroen-ish.

I very much like the design language of Lexus nowadays. No one can call them beige anymore. In fact BMW and Audi styling designs are getting pretty stagnant. (Aside from the i8)
Lexus is maybe not elegant or pretty but definitely bold and aggressive. In a sports coupe this is a good thing. Even if the M4 is marginally quicker, I prefer this because its not the default douchebag choice.

Bravo! I think the Evora is probably one of the only realistic cars I'd upgrade my car to if I could swing it... I am really curious to test drive one and see how it feels. Although it's nearly 1000 lbs heavier than an Elise, I've heard such remarkable things about the steering feel and handling. Glad to know that Lotus engineers managed to keep the magic, despite adding creature comforts and a larger body.

Tell Miura to do a rocket bunny Lotus Exige! Would definitely be tempting

You guys think youre purists but youre actually just being backwards traditionalists. This is a tech demo to show that car safety tech has advanced to a point where the car can correct itself in a loss of traction situation without direct steering or throttle input. This in and of itself is progress. It is not replacing the driver and nevertheless doesnt ever have to be used by the driver if they dont choose to.
Think about how absurd people who thought like you sounded when groundbreaking safety tech like ABS or seatbelts were introduced in cars for the first time. "What will happen to the joy of threshold braking yourself?? If i want to strap myself in the car with my bare hands in case of collision I should be able to! God gave me hands to hold on duh!"
Jesus sometimes car "enthusiasts" are such whiny children. Actually most times. Car lovers on the other hand understand and appreciate forward thinking as well as valuing the essense of driving not only faster but safer.

@LukeHuxham Would you care to share the track so we can listen to the original recording? I actually enjoy the soundtrack, along with the sound of the cars, but am also having some strange sound issues. Thanks, and nice cinematography. Mr A's stare was bad ass.

This was my favorite car of the year last year. The bodywork of course was one of the craziest aspects of the build. Glad you're getting several opportunities to break the build down for us. Enjoy!

I am really liking the Lotus content :) I have been thinking of entering Lotus Cup myself, but need some more regular trackday experience first. Also, I'm not sure where my car would be categorized since I have a K20. Maybe with the V6 Exiges/Evoras which would likely crush me!
Nice writeup Jonathan!

Oy, Dino when's that OuterPlus coming along? Wasn't it promised in one of those "upcoming this month" posts awhile ago

Does anyone remember the original Driftworks videos before Youtube was around that got like a million views? They were unrelated to this Driftworks UK production, but I remember watching my friend who created the series download hours and hours of bootleg drifting clips from P2P file sharing clients like Kazaa and Napster, and then spending days creating those long techno-pumping compilations.

Those stupid roof scoops...Otherwise, I like the Ferrari Lusso/250 Berlinetta front end look. The rear taillights coulda been molded better so it doesn't look like a cover over the stock lights too.
Overall, I don't feel very inspired or disappointed. But the owner sure has a one of a kind car and the effort involved definitely shows.

Thanks for sharing more pics of the Europa. I think its one if my favorite feature cars on SH along with the LaSupra and Franks Exige.
Btw do you know the ballpark rent for those apartments above REA

Alonso may not like being under pressure from his teammate, but Ferrari is still his best shot at a WDC, barring Red Bull or Mercedes both of which have already locked in their drivers. And true to Alonso's political/mind game agenda, he's already made public comments equalizing Kimi and Massa as drivers, although we all know that after 2009, Massa's stock has gone down and Kimi's has only gone up since his return.
Think about it though. This season, the only teams that have been able to really hold a candle to RBR throughout the course of the season has been Mercedes and Lotus. Ferrari and McLaren have struggled and fallen off the development curve and although Ferrari sits above Lotus in the Constructor's currently, it's more to do with Alonso's early season wins and points consistency. Lotus has been able to challenge Ferrari and also the other teams because of Kimi's own performance, as well as having James Allison who is regarded as second only to Newey in terms of design.
Now that Ferrari have snatched up JA as well as other key Lotus staff, it has now made Ferrari as strong a team as Mercedes and RBR. Furthermore, next year's engine regulations will favor teams that have factory engine support. That would be the three aforementioned teams. Lotus will likely suffer next year with the loss of those technical people and Kimi (although Hulk would give them great motivation to challenge), and McLaren will probably will not recover form until Honda comes on board since Mercedes will likely share as little engine data with them as possible next year.
Plus, Alonso v Kimi is just awesome for us fans. If he can win a WDC against Kimi as his teammate, it will cement his legacy as one of the greatest of this or any generation and actually increase those dismissive critics of Vettel who has not really been challenged by a teammate before.
