With the Cayman R, Porsche took weight reduction to the next level, and you need look no further than the interior door handle for proof. Instead of using a traditional metal handle, the Cayman R comes equipped with nylon straps. Aluminum and carbon fiber abounds, as the Cayman R is here to blow your doors off, figuratively speaking.
That lightweight approach, coupled with a six cylinder, 3.4- liter engine producing 330 horsepower and north of 273 pound-feet of torque. It’s a remarkably well-balanced car, one that offers you advanced ceramic-composite brakes and a limited-slip differential.
SCION’s hot new FR-S in Speedhunters.com tuned form. Very interesting paint material creation on this one.
To recreate the paint of this real-world drift car, I had to figure out a way of combining gloss black, matte black, semi-gloss metallic gray, metallic orange and both logos and stripes onto one material to be applied to the UV unwrapped body.
This schematic from MAX’s Slate material editor indicates how I was able to combine multiple blend material types into one composite material.
Black and white bitmap masks control the separation of the colors within each blend material and how that nested blend material combines with the one above it in the hierarchy.
Needless to say this didn’t come about without some forethought and planning, but it does indicate that some pretty wild combinations of materials can be put together into one master material.
Have fun experimenting!

smart is a Daimler AG company closely tied to Mercedes. So being that the smart fortwo is such a wimpy little thing it needed some F1 testosterone infusion.

A 611-horsepower engine crossed with an elegant leather interior. The most powerful production car ever built by Porsche, coupled with looks that would cause a sailor to blush.
The 2012 Porsche 911 GT2 RS is the top of the line version of Porsche’s latest 911 and features stunning looks along with twin turbos, an adjustable suspension, carbon-ceramic brakes, and the kind of power that demands attention. No wonder so many reviewers have referred to Porsche’s latest masterpiece as “Beauty & the Beast”—it’s at once a stunning piece of automotive eye candy, and objectively one of the most terrifyingly powerful cars to be released in years. Yet, despite its grunt, the GT2 RS manages its power well. This is a smooth-driving and easy-to-handle car at low speeds and one that will peel your face off at the limit.
And beyond all of that, its just pure sex on wheels.
