A Nissan 370Z with nearly 3000 components was built in perspect over a 10 week period. The body work was achieved using a Vac-Forming process. Some parts were scanned and machined out of solid perspex. Other parts were moulded and cast in clear cast resin. All other parts were hand made. 25 modelmakers worked 60 hour weeks over ten weeks to get the car finished in time for the shoot. Over 3 tons of perspex was required to complete the car, with thechassis being the heaviest single component. A twice up in scale engine was driven by an electric motor to show the route of the oil in the engine.
