Hey Tom, really nice update man I like where this project is going!! You got some small pinches at some sharp corners, but nothing that can easily be fixed!! I'm really curious how you gonna create the roof construction!! Will it be a hardtop or softtop ? Looking forward to some updates
Vladimirsc, your comment make me thinking about no-windshield work, but I disliked my sketches, I thought it doesn't suit the car. So I tried to come up with a "light" and subtle windshield. Have a look below please.
andyflagg, I will. I already posted some orthographic views of my model, please check post #15.
Erik_S, as wrote earlier, I try to achieve a Zonda Cinque Roadster style, mixed with Carrera GT I think. Here's a first attempt.
I'm kinda surprised so much of you doesn't know the car. Basically, it's just one more "tuner attempt against Veyron" : existing car with a 1000hp engine. But I think this do a little more because :
1/ It looks really impressive
2/ It's based on a Lotus Elise/Exige
3/ It features a ambiguous engine, a big american V8 but a rather advanced one, the LS9 from Corvette ZR1
4/ It reminds everyone the Cobra : big US engine on a small UK car.
5/ It doesn't try to mimic the luxury interior of the Veyron, instead it's really close to a Lotus interior.
Looks great Tom. The engine cover is a nice solution. And shows enough detail without spending weeks (months?) building a full engine. If I had the choice of 4 weeks in italy with mates or build an engine I know what I would be doing.
Better headlight covering, grilles on the top of the hood, grilles in side air intakes (even if they aren't visible with this lighting), some rubber around windows, rear wing with mechanism, rear grille (can't be seen with this view), carbon side skirts...
