Panoz Abruzzi Spirit of Le Mans
I film the all-new, limited edition Panoz Abruzzi Spirit Of Le Mans at it's
North American debut during the 2010 Petit Le Mans endurance race at Road
Atlanta. Besides possibly being the most evil-looking production car ever,
it is also a technological marvel. I am pleased to present the first full
video of this car on youtube.
The Abruzzi Spirit of Le Mans consists of only 81 examples, which in 2013
represents the number of 24 Hours of Le Mans races since the event's
inception in 1923. All of the Spirit of Le Mans editions will be sold in
Europe, the Middle East and Asia. The Corvette ZR1's V8 engine is used to
produce over 600 hp in the Abruzzi, which, like every other Panoz, is
handbuilt in Hoschton, Georgia. In addition to the mammoth power and torque
from the LS9, the car is super light and super strong, being the first road
car built with the new REAMS material, which is stronger and lighter than
carbon fiber. I could go on about all of the incredible details
incorporated into this car, but I'll let the car speak for itself. :)
The song is Genesis by Justice.
Goodwood Festival of Speed UK
Video clips of the Goodwood Festival of Speed showing fast cars on the
track and on display. Including Aston Martins, Ferraris, Jaguars, Mercedes,
F1's old and new. Enjoy. If your a petrol head its worth a visit.
Panoz Esperante GT1
I film another one of Panoz's insane creations: the Esperante GT1.
Apparently only 2 of these monstrous machines exist, and this example is
finished in an awesome chameleon paint job. Unfortunately I didn't get any
shots of the GTR-1 race car behind it, but maybe next year. ;) Filmed at
the 2010 Petit Le Mans racing weekend at Road Atlanta...
Shelby Series 1 @ the Barrett Jackson auction
the sale price of this car was kind of low. the condition of the car was a
little poor and it was a prototype that could never be licensed for the
street. i was recently contacted by the former Oldsmobile Div GM Engineer
who worked on the Shelby Series 1 project. he had control over all 5
prototypes. he says this is not one of them...oops!!!
Goodwood Festival Of Speed 2008: Rally Stage Compilation
Compilation video of footage taken by myself at various locations around
the Goodwood Forest Rally Stage during the 2008 Festival Of Speed. The
soundtrack has been left untouched as I don't see the point in recording
the sound of these classic cars, then drowning it out with music.
Footage includes (in no particular order); Audi Sport Quattro, Ford RS200,
Peugeot 205 T16, Subaru Impreza WRC (1995), Subaru Impreza WRC (1999),
Subaru Impreza WRC (2008), Peugeot-Cosworth, Hyundai Accent WRC,
Mitsuibishi Lancer Evo IX, Skoda Octavia Evo III, Skoda Fabia WRC, Bremont
Rally Raid Buggy, Lancia 037, Lancia Stratos, MG Metro 6R4, Toyota Celica
GT-Four ST-185, Porsche 911 Carrera, Talbot Sunbeam Lotus, Renault 5 Maxi
turbo plus an assortment of Ford Escort
Mk1's, Ford Escort Mk2's and a Ford Escort G3.
Special thanks to Petter Solberg (Subaru Impreza WRC 2008), Mikko Hirvonen
(Ford Focus WRC) and Ian Gwynne (Skoda Octavia Evo III) for all managing to
hit me with bits of the scenery; still, watching rally just wouldn't be the
same if you didn't have parts of the course bouncing off your head!
Anyway, turn up the volume, sit back and enjoy!
Very rare Panoz Esperante GT1 & others
The only road-legal prototype in the world. Only two were ever made. The
Esperante GT1 is the road legal version of the GTR-1, and was made to meet
Behind the GT1 you can see a GTR-1.
Thanks for watching.
