The F5 at Thermal Raceway

So, over the past month or so, I’ve been working on this! A teaser trailer for the new F5 they’ve been designing. Crazy to see a car take shape from CAD mockups, to foam blocks being milled, to this final concept in the flesh (kinda, it’s still foam underneath the paint). Really fun to edit and see the VFX shots that the production team shot at Angeles Crest HWY too. Underneath the VFX version of the F5 is a McLaren 720s covered in tracking markers.

The little squares are tracking points from the matchmove software.

It should be interesting to see how this car pans out over the next year or so when they source a powerplant and start testing it’s theoretical top speed of 300 mph.
