    An F40 would be great, I'll search him out.

    I do indeed.

    Excellent, grab my email address from www.adamswords.com and we'll get it sorted.

    I use a combination of techniques for my tracking shots.
    1) Car to car tracking, shooting hanging out of a boot (R8 and Scirocco)
    2) Stick on car rig
    3) Static shot of the car in the scene, then a 'plate' without it which is blurred to look like it's moving. The car is then added back in and the composite is built up using photoshop.

    How far North West are you?

    That's a great idea! Shall do, thanks.

    See above - lots of ways to do it, but you're right hanging out of a car is the most exciting ;)

    Great, get in touch :) www.adamswords.com

    I'd call it a supercar! Love the R8 and have shot a few, but would love to shoot yours when you get it. And a sterile workshop environment sounds good, you've certainly been brainwashed by audi brochure images haven't you ;)

    The shoots are on location and the cars are cleaned (usually by myself as I'm a bit of a clean freak too!) there on the spot if necessary or depending on the caliber of the shoot we often trailer the cars to the locations to avoid getting grubby.

    I'm going to want some nice photos of my Mustang done at some point if your interested? I'm in Woking so not sure if that's too far.

    2005, check out page 3 and 5 of THIS link (that's my car with it's previous owner). It's had a few bits done since those photos (new alloys etc....).

    My Lancia's been shot before, but if you wanted something different you'd be welcome.

    Yep, the older Audi stock photos of the Red R8 are fantastic!

    My signature picture is ripped from that set, a copy of that with my own car would be amazing!


    As for the super car comments, In my opinion it is a sports car, not even close to super car performance or price :p

    A TT-RS is a sports car, an R8 is a super car ;)

    Why wouldn't he want a hyper-hot dag-dag for a photo shoot?

    That Delta! :cool:

    I can arrange for my E92 M3 (rare colour 1 of 3 in RHD - individual velvet blue) to be joined with another E92 M3 (indigo blue) (that a good friend owns) and we are both very close to Warwickshire.

    I'll send you an email and let you decide ;)

    I have a panamera and will have a 911 or a R8 again as soon as I find a good one.

    You can shoot my Bentley and Scooby STi, they both have matching colour schemes and number plates, you'll have to drive one though!

    Ditto with my S2000. It's the hard top version though so looks better than the MX-5 lookalikes:p

    JP, you contain a large proportion of ultimate win :D

    Looking forward to seeing the R8, had a nice poke around one in the dealership last week after dropping off my damaged m-lite next door and boy was it pretty. Don't think I need to convince the GF that it's the right thing to move to after her 'Dag a Dag' TT.

    Yeah, far too much cheap old Jap crap on here :p
