60s Coupe Body

This afternoon's work - I don't think its great (its still a bit wavy and odd in places), but I'm starting to learn a lot more about making cars, and this one was about 5 times as quick to make as the last few, and possibly a bit better done.

Its a coupe along the lines of an Aston Martin DB2, complete with some Minilite style wheels (Zeussy also worked out how to do wire wheels, damn those things are confusing!)

Re: 60s Coupe Body

Great! Adding it to IGCD. When you have an ingame screen, I'll try to replace it.

Edit: I think it's the lightning thing, but it resembles pictures depicting GTA III beta cars.

Re: 60s Coupe Body

Re: 60s Coupe Body

It's a good starting point but it's more '50s than '60s. Other than the DB2 early Ferraris, and early '50s Maseratis looked similar.
Typical '60s coupes looked different. Some examples:

ISO Grifo:

BMW 2000CS:

Fiat 2300S Coupe:

And in the mid sixties a new style was born, the mid-engined supercar. The first of this type was the Lamborghini Miura in '66:

Re: 60s Coupe Body

Its also a bit e-type, but it actually does look a bit like a 1950s bristol 404 as well.

It might end up more being 50's then yes, but regardless there will be a range of coupe bodies :)

Re: 60s Coupe Body

May i suggest some 60s coupe bodies as inspiration?

Namely the Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint (GTA), a well known european classic.

Or the Fiat 850 Sport Coupe:
Image


And let's not forget the legendary Lancia Fulvia:
Image


Err....and a bit of dutch pride :mrgreen: , the Daf 55 Coupe/Marathon (introduced in 1968):
Image

But i'd better stop with these few, since i could go on and on about cars. :lol:


EDIT: What about producing a certain bodystyle thru various decades, something along the lines like Morgan.
Don't know if it could work, but it's something to consider.

PS. Keep up the good work, like the shell.

Re: 60s Coupe Body

That's really a shame, those are meant to be driven.
And by that, i don't mean good old grannie-style. :mrgreen:

Anyway....let's get back on-topic. ;)

Re: 60s Coupe Body

Actually, Europe is unique by it's 60s Coupes. Citroen Ds 21 Chapron, BMW 1600, Ford Capri, Mercedes 280 SE, DeTomaso Pantera, Austin Mini Couper S, Jaguar E Type, Porsche 911, etc. America also gave some of the best and most popular cars ever: Ford Mustang Mach 1, Chevrolet Impala, Corvette Sting Ray, Camaro SS, Pontiac Gto, etc. Now, when I'm thinking about 60s cars, I found that you can't make just 3 chassis types for all of them. Those years factories wanted something new and different. My opinion is to take 1 American muscle (square body), and 2-3 European (misc square-round) chassis. This is just my opinion.
Just lovin' cars, that's it!
