(Interactive) Eye Candy: Audi R8

I was a fan from the moment I had seen the commercial. Suddenly, there was a car that had in fact everything that I was (and still am) looking for: German quality with a stunning design. A real head turner! I’m talking about the Audi R8…

I collected all the material that I could get. Especially photographs of the interior. After all, I wanted to imitate like I could actually drive the car, and look at it from the inside.
It took me a long time to draw everything in detail and in the right perspective. Then, it took even more time to simulate the actual driving…

Drive it on a machine that supports flash.[/swfobj]
To drive the car, click on the flash movie above. Use the arrows keys to gain speed, break or steer.There was (and still is) only one problem: I didn’t have the money to buy it. That’s why I decided to make the car myself. Digitally.

…I guess you can call me crazy. Still, when I look back at the hard work that was involved with creating my own customized Audi R8, I have to say it was well worth it.

Who knows, someday I’ll buy myself a real one. Until that day, this one will keep me satisfied.
