2008 Mazda  Furai Concept by melkorius 2008 Mazda  Furai Concept by melkorius
The Mazda Furai is a concept car revealed on 27 December 2007 and manufactured by Mazda.[ A teaser image of the vehicle was released on 11 December 2007. The Furai officially debuted at the 2008 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
The Furai, meaning "sound of the wind", is the fifth and last of the Mazda Nagare line of concept cars that have been made by Mazda since 2006. The chassis is based on the Courage Compétition C65 Le Mans Prototype that Mazda last used to compete in the American Le Mans Series, two seasons previously and is designed to use E100 ethanol fuel, it is powered by a new generation 20B 3-rotor wankel engine that puts out 450 brake horsepower (340 kW). The engine is developed and built by renowned rotary tuner, Racing Beat, who also built the car's rotary-shaped muffler canister.

The car bears the #55 number that of its 1991 24 Hours of Le Mans winning ancestor, the 787B. Unlike many concept cars, the Furai is fully functional and is currently being tested at various tracks. It has run at Laguna Seca and Buttonwillow.

Head designer, Laurens van den Acker, has stated in an interview with Top Gear magazine that there are possibilities of the Furai being used for racing in Le Mans, and he also has strong hopes that the car could be brought to the market.

nice. I like the fluid design to the body, and the paint job is fantastic. Even the ethanol emblems were placed impeccably.

Great render ! I like the colors you use for your evening shots - they look really warm.
Also, Furai is one of my favourite modern concept - it looks really exotic and thought-out.

Thank you so much Adam, if you see your email it's in your inbox ;). the trick for the light is only a Hdry environment with other vray lights. And this car is verrrryyy beautiful...:D

Ah cool :D I never used HDRI extensively. I prefer to use standard maps and then adjust the reflections and color balance in post-processing.

melkorius Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013  Professional General Artist
If you want my opinion, using Hdri is the fastest way to have light on the scene and complete with some minor lights to mach with the Hdri...and you dont have to worry with reflection of course :D

Yeah but I always have some issues that aren't fine by me - I almost never use the same light source for colour and shadows. There are times when I want gloss to be seen, but have more visible shadows as well. Most of the time I set up one for brightness, another one for shadows and extra for gloss (most of the time more than one :P).
