Whilst I don't quite see the "fighter-jet" influences (been a plane nut for 3 decades) I do love so many aspects of this build. The seats remind me more of old WWII bomber pilot seats, the engine and engine bay is utterly immaculate, the interior is perfect, and the overall fit and finish are just stunning. I thought that the Pantera was rad, but this is a WHOLE other level of amazingness!!!

As a parent, the ABT RS6. Hands down, the baddest family car ever. To paraphrase what I said in the comments, I'll take mine in a semi matte combat grey colour (like a B-1B bomber) with black carbon.As a hoon, the TVR Sagaris... Seriously, I've loved that car from when it was first bequeathed upon the world. Side firing exhaust and all.

Despite all of the noise from the naysayers I have to say that this is an absolutely beautiful car. It's one that I certainly admire, and I can't wait to see how it all turns out!

Dear Lawd! I want this car. If only to scare my girlfriend, friends and, thrill my 6 year old daughter. I'd go for a dark combat grey colour with black carbon parts myself. It's a B-1B, only in car form.

Taryn, This a great write up and some rad photos too!! I am not a car owner (yet) but I am a CAR guy. Be it stanced, poke, tuck, time attack, drift, whatever. If it looks good, I dig it. If I don't like how it looks, then so be it. Maybe it's because I'm an older guy (42) or that I have an open mind, I don't know... All I know that people just love to hate that which doesn't fit THEIR opinion or box they live in. It's not hard people!!! Have an open mind, accept that which is different and new and who knows, you just might learn and love something new.

I'm in full agreement with you. I also have very few friends that are as into cars as I am. But after going into the Lamborghini Vancouver dealer I learnt about the local cars and coffee events. I've been going every month now and as I go I find that I am discovering new friends and people to talk to and connect with. I'm happy to have taken the chance and walked into a place that's normally reserved for the folks with a lot of cash. Doing that has given me an opportunity to get together with fellow gear heads and it's been awesome.

Jun,Thank you for bringing all of these amazing cars to the world of Hot Wheels. I own some of the cars that you've designed and I am still trying to hunt down the 510 Wagon and a couple of others up here in Vancouver. It's been awesome collecting all of the cars that I have loved since young and the cars that I'd love to have in a MASSIVE dream garage someday. Keep it rolling fresh!JJ

Thanks for the gear post Paddy, it's good to know that even what relativley basic gear I have is pretty good for me. I've got a Canon 50D and recently I bought the 50mm 1.8. It's been a blast shooting with that lens as it has shown me the value of the prime lens, and the amazing effect of a wide open lens. I also have the 17-85 that works great in all situations and a Sigma 70-300. I can't wait to keep trying the tips that both you and Larry have given us!

Hey Mike, and the Speedhunters crew. Thank you for all of the hard work that you all do. I've been reading Speedhunters for just over a year and needless to say it has become my number one site for all things car related. Why? Because you are all CAR people. It doesn't matter what the scene is you are all there taking killer photos and writing excellent articles. You've opened my eyes to so much more than just what a car is, but to what a car, and it's people, can be. Stance, JDM, bippu, hakosuka, onikayan, drift, static, bagged, and more are all words, pictures and ideas that I carry in my head. One damn day I'll have a car of my own and it will proudly carry a Speedhunters decal for all time.

The F1 is such an iconic car and to have Speedhunters profile it with the great prose and pictures is nigh on perfect.

Good Lord, those are some excellent photos! Wallpapers would be a most excellent gift...;-) By the way, out here in Vancouver there is a shop that has what I believe are two Lancia Delta's. One yellow and one black with a red spoiler. I'll try to get photos one day!

Understand that I do not own a car yet. But if I did...For me, and for me only (it is MY opinion) I'd go with bags. Being a family guy, I have a daughter and a Girlfriend that I would love to take out on drives all over the place. To Whistler, to Victoria, the Interior of BC and more. I also ride bikes and love to get outside. Bags would be my option primarily because I can raise the ride height when carrying folsk and stuff, but if I'm out on my own and just crusing then I an drop her down and show off the cars lines, wheels and more. I realize that there are two schools of thought on this, and that there are many opinions and idea as to what's better. But as it's been said many times it is up to the individual to go for what makes them feel good. I firmly believe in this and I'll never berate soemone who thinks that static is the way to go. If the shoe fits...

Question:Is that road part of the EVO triangle that EVO magazine uses? I know from reading the mag (I'm in Vancouver, BC) that they absolutely love the roads out in Wales due to the exact reasons you outlined in the photo essay. Also, your photo essay is simply amazing. I mean really, really amazing. Your prose and photography is top notch and the black & white work just makes it all the better.

Mr. Moore, I'll have to agree with you. The GT3 is making the new 991 a much better looking car than it's lesser stablemates. When I first saw a 991 here in Vancouver I just couldn't get around to liking it, but the GT3 adds the right amount of "stuff" to bring it all back into shape for me. As for the Rolls, I'm with auzzya. It's not a nice looking car. It, in my eyes, should have been a proper coupe and not have suffered the weirdness that is that back end. I do appreciate the honest take on the ladies, it's too bad that certain ones were left to be on thier own for so damn long, and I give major props to the ones who were into the cars that they were repping. By the way, the model with the Giugiaro has an epic dress. Probably some serious coture there as my Lady would say.

Well with progress being progress we were bound to lose to the march of technology, even with Porsche. For me personally the size of the 991 kinda makes me feel at odds with it. The GT3 is a bit better but I'll always love, and want, a 997.2 GT3. The loss of the 3rd pedal is sad but we all knew that this was coming. My one true beef with this car is the interior. It is, for lack of a better word, too damn plush for a car with the GT3 title; the sat nav screen and all those damn buttons are my issues here. Hopefully the RS will strip out some that frippery, and shiny stuff for a more focused interior.

@FunctionFirst Truth. I like it, it's so far OTT that it could ONLY be a Lamborghini, and really... I'd reckon that Lambo doesn't give a rats ass what any body else thinks about the Veneno. They made 4. One with all three stripes of the Italian flag (that one stays with Lambo), and three more; each with single colour from the flag.

I have been reading Speedhunters for a while now and this is the first time that I have ever commented. This article and all of it's images have finally cracked me. I am in total awe of the images and the the story that has been written about them. You are all top-notch writers and photographers. Thank you for all of the seriously excellent work that you have done, do and will create in the new year. You have a fan for life.
