When I was young, I had a poster of Ford GT40 on my bedroom wall and I wanted to drive it one day. Even though that dream never came true for me, discovering that Corona was involved in making of its successor, the new Ford GT 2016, was even better ;).
In this post, Andy Tanguay describes the process and challenges of making images of this legendary car.
Corona was used to create all of the vehicle CG for the press event for the unveiling of the all-new Ford GT on January 12, 2015 at the Detroit North American International Auto Show.
Developed under the codename ‘Project Phoenix’, this LeMan’s bound super car has been in very secret development for just over a year and was the huge hit of the NAIAS. Projected onto a massive 180 ft wide screen filling Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, the presentation was rendered with Corona at 7600×1200.
The Corona-rendered GT starts up around the :50 mark
