Rendering the Toyota 2000GT as a Modern Race Car Is Sacrilege but It Still Looks Cool
It's like a Super GT vehicle from an alternate universe.
Toyota UK’s official Twitter handle and blog posted up these digital renderings of a classic 2000GT which are kind of wacky, but mostly amazing.
- Cars: Toyota 2000GT
- Location: A fake digital realm
- Photog: Luis González (@hakosan_design on IG)
- Camera: Digital render made with Photoshop and Blender
At first, I thought this was something Toyota cooked up in-house, but according to Toyota UK’s official blog, which is linked off that embedded tweet thread, it was done by a 25-year-old digital artist from Spain named Luis González. Per Toyota’s site:
“Wanting to pay tribute to the brand’s first sports car, and a personal childhood favourite, [González] took inspiration from previous Toyota racing cars such as the Castrol-liveried Toyota Supra TOM’S, famous for racing in the Super GT category of the ’90s, to create the widebody stance of the ‘Super Toyota 2000GT’ race car.”
Way cool. I don’t usually get excited enough about renders to want to share them, but, this one spoke to me so please enjoy.
