    Did it already sell? Look at the headlights! Same recessed look that people always seem to dislike more then any other part of the car.

    I have an original rendering of a different prototype. I will post a picture tomorrow.

    Heres the concept drawing I have. Looks a lot like a Lotus Espirit to me.
    The GTP logo is the best logo of all I think

    I agree, I love the logo, the car not so much.
    I like the car in my post!

    Dave Blyth became one of the world's best Ferrari artists!

    About all I found out so far about the artist in the 1st post.



    - - - Updated - - -

    More....
    Dave started out as a custom car painter at age 19, putting flames and graphics on many of Canterbury’s top rods drag cars and race boats of the day.
    In 1987 he and his wife, Ingrid, headed off their big OE, an adventure that took them first to California - where they hung out with hot rod scene heroes – earning bucks by hand painting concept renderings of their cars in different paint schemes, this being in the days before computers. His clients then included movement superstar Boyd Coddington.
    After this, a fresh chapter: Driving around Europe in a junky old American van while Dave found good money making a living from providing portraits of rich listers’ favourite personal drives: He drew a LOT of Ferraris. He then progressed to large scale artwork, painting huge race car murals on the flanks of race truck and trailer units, this being in the days before the advent of computerised vinyl sign writing.
    In 1995 Dave came home and started up Webdesign; a prescient move: It’s now a major provider of websites to the national auto sales scene.
    Life’s been good to Dave; he’s moved away from the Auckland rat race to the enjoy country quiet, overlooking Lake Taupo. His business operates from Taupo and, when not sitting behind a computer screen, he can be found tinkering with an ever-growing collection of classics and Hot Rods, which includes a 1978 Holden Sandman panel van (youth dream machine) that will find small screen fame as the Ted West’s work vehicle in the Outrageous Fortune prequel Westside 2.

    Dave Blyth remembers well his school report cards which had comments like “Would do better at maths if he didn't draw pictures of cars".
    After seeing these comments his Mother told him; "You will never make any money drawing pictures of cars."
    It was only when he was charging $5000 US for a painting of a $5 million dollar Ferrari for a Swiss collector and being flown across the world to paint a mural for a Florida Billionaire on the wall of his Penthouse apartment at Atlanta Motor Speedway that Dave realized his Mothers words would not hold true!

    Dave with an acrylic painting of a $5 million dollar Ferrari on a Swss collectors wall.
    It was a different time in the 1990s. Computers didn't rule the world and people who could paint realistic paintings were in demand.
    Dave spent his Summers in Europe and winters in Florida with the occasional winter trip to Indianapolis to hand paint with spray cans and enamel brushes an Indy car mural on both sides of a transporter 60 feet long and 12 feet high (that's 20 metres x 4 metres for modern guys)

    I wrote to him and got this.....

    Hi Johnny

    Actually quite a story on that.
    Around 1990 a magazine called Sports Car Illustrated had a contest to re-design the Mosler Consulier sports car, which at the time went well but looked like an ugly kit car.
    This was my entry which was inspired at the time by cars like Acura NSX , Ferrari F40
    They apparently had around 10,000 entries and this one got 4th with the first 3 places going to full time car designers from Detroit.
    It was painted in acrylics with prismacolor pencil highlights.
    It would have been in the Collection of George Shelley, a friend and colleague from Boca Raton Florida.

    At that time I specialised in portraits of collector cars, mostly Ferraris.
    These days I have a website design company specialising in car related websites.

    Kind regards

    Dave Blyth
    CEO Webdesign Ltd.
