Did a first test of a newer rig. Worked out pretty well but needs more adjustment. Had it sent to the fabricator for some teaks, can't wait to rig the next car.

If you're all wondering what car is this, it's actually a Toyota Supra. With the Lexus SC transformation, and Super GT wide body kit made by Monster Garage.

Very fast, Very expensive & Very cool!

This car is spectacular, it's a monster indeed! Not a car you would like to drive everyday, it's probably one of the most difficult cars I had ever driven, took me quite a while to get the clutch work with the gas. And I was pretty freaked out after 2cd gear. The speed just smashes into your face. Oh and the clutch feels like 50kgs of leg press. Brakes doesn't feel normal either. The dashboard is like a jet fighters cock pit and smells like petroleum inside. It really gives a super car feeling, like a Gumpert but a street and much more less comfortable version. It has about 700-800hp under the hood. The owner is probably one of the most responsible drivers I had ever known who drives cars like these.

It was pretty fun doing this shoot. We were accompanied with some pretty bored police officers who were just interested to ask about the car. And it happened twice, they were cool. It's also amazing to watch how people would look at this car when driving through the highway and town areas. One driver on the road was having his eyes glued to this car that he nearly knock into me by the side.

Anyways i'm going to try out some videography on this car during the weekend since my rig isn't with me. Can't wait for it.

Need photo, this is really dynamic and strong. It's interesting how rugged the car feels, not polished and uber shiny like they so often do. on the contrary, this has a really robust appearance :nod:

Nice work :D
