About Coupe
I'm not sure I would want to drive this coupe myself, but I enjoy the way that various styles and influences combine to form an "automotive collage." Hints of the late 1990's / early 2000's BMW aesthetic blend with a pseudo 1939 Lincoln Continental spare tire and DeLorean rear window vents. The hood scoops are one of my favorite features; I like the way they are blended into the grille. This is an odd vehicle to be sure. I tried a variety of colors and found that bright ones look best, with red being an obvious choice. A silver version of the car is featured in the animation "Crossing Signal," developed to showcase possibilities for 3D accident scene reconstruction for civil cases.

The two images shown were rendered in TrueSpace 6.5, with virtually no touch-ups later in Photoshop or other imaging programs. The model shown has a high polygon count, and could probably have been made lighter and less unwieldy with judicious use of high resolution textures and more careful modelling.
