Virtual Car Photography Has Never Looked More Real

I’ve been playing video games since the early days, and of course, watching my favorite vehicles ever more incredibly rendered each year has been amazing to behold.

It used to be that there was barely enough memory to get a red blob from start to finish, with a few dozen turns in between. Now, virtual cars are defined with enough computing power to run a row of Sega Outrun cabinets. This has also allowed for game designers to become more creative and add features in order to appeal to a wider audience. Gran Turismo 4 was the first game to have this feature, and it’s something that’s appealed to me from the start.

Always thought a diorama that looked like this courtyard would be the cat's meow.

Could use it for both street and track cars. Perhaps even nighttime shots.

Sadly, I have nowhere near enough skill to create such a thing.

Pole Position! Loved that game.

Also liked Grand Prix (completely different driving perspective).
