Very nice.
I want one.
If my memory serves me right, didn't these older racing cars actually have tires this color ? I think it had to do with the type of rubber - the softer tyres had a duller finish.
Your model looks fantastic.

aahh those curves of the 60's absolutely stunning!

may I ask how did you do those tires??

maybe you haven't seen it, but there's a glap between the headlights and the body..

really great work!

Fantastic! Like most on here, I don't usually bother with car pics because, well... they all usually look pretty much the same. This is superb though, a classic car, superb lighting, excellent materials and shaders.

The tyres are spot on, any of us that own cars know that even if you wash them, they never really look clean so they're spot on. Would agree with the deformed tyre due to weight though, would add that final touch.

The number position is typical of the era this car came from, look any pics of the old e-type jags etc... and you will find the number offset on the bonnet. It's one of the things that added that extra bit of character.

Would love to have seen this with some wire-spoke wheels with knock-off hubs... a la E-Type, MG midget etc...

Thanks to you all people for the constructive critiques and nice comments,I definitely agree with most of the advices to improve the realism ,especially about the weight of the tyres and the antialiasing problems , i`ll try to fix them for the upcoming animation

Could you share the wisdom of lighting/scene setup?
