“A Supercar is a world-class vehicle, but a Hypercar pushes the boundaries of the possible”
How would you like to drive this Ferrari through the Tuscan countryside? Let me take you there..
From a showroom floor to a dusty road in Tuscany. I pictured the Ferrari in the shade of cypress trees which lined the route to a hill top village and started montaging various elements together.
After trying many variations, I settled on the idea of a tempting vista opening up between the trees. This is after all the kind of car that you would want to drive all day before finding a room in a hill top village.
LAMBORGHINI COUNTACH (1974 – 1990)
It’s hard to believe these futuristic cars were already rolling out on the road at the beginning of the 1970s. This is a LP400S from 1981.
That spoiler…those rear lights! I couldn’t make up my mind so I carefully montaged both front and rear views. I wanted an icy landscape not just an Alpine ski resort so opted for dawn on a frozen lake.
I isolated the cars and then set about blending them into the background. Extra snow and ice, some tinting, some haze and finished off with some sun flare. Cool.
Bugatti Bolide (2021)
The Bolide’s name comes from the term le bolide, which literally means “the racing car” in French. 0–100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.2 seconds. Enough said.
I originally thought of putting the car in a wind blown Mad Max scene but settled for a homage to the 1982 film classic – Blade runner. Those night time street scenes were unforgettable. Photo credit: Bugatti
I started montaging a kind of ‘backstreet Shanghai’ scene together. This looked good but I felt it needed more of a futuristic feel with abstract architecture and you may notice the added police vehicle.
