Yes, brilliant, sharp design, very 2009. 370Z-style headlights look great on it - funny, as I don't like them on the 370Z.

AXIS - very very nice man. I like the blend of 370Z and GTR. The front shouts 370Z whilst the rear is very GTR orientated. The only problem i have is with the wheels. They dont look right , they car is very 3D but the wheels are very flat looking. Otherwise great job

Kramer- looks very familiar to one of your previous works. Im not enjoying the front end much, it looks very busy and doesnt intergrate very well. From the A-pillar back however, it looks pretty decent. One thing you must consider with your next design is to increase the length of your wheelbase. At the moment your silvia's wheelbase is 1 and a half wheels in length which is rather short. Should be about 3 wheels at least. I can see the rear has been inspired by previous silvias. Good work

I have done so many silvia sketches, but I aint happy with any of them. I think i'm gonna try and forget adding retro Silvia design cues and go modern and cutting edge.. the kind of car the Silvia would be now. I'm also thinking of making it a small coupe, as the 370z and GT-R cover a lot of the coupe market. I think the Silvia should be the affordable Nissan coupe.

I'll try and get a final entry done before the deadline but can't promise anything!


All the entries so far are awesome!

Thanks for the C&C, mate. I'll try to work on my wheelbase, but keep in mind that this is a concept sketch and the *production* version won't have wheels nearly as big. Just like every other concept car ;P

Bah,

Not gonna have time to draw the ultimate Silvia, so i'll enter the best of a bad bunch of Silvia's that i've drawn. I'll post up the others at a later date in the design section.

Anyway, my entry...

With this Silvia, I tried to mix some GT-R cues with a simple and clean front end with echoes of S13.

I'd be happy with it - it's SICK!
LOL, it looks really good - I like how some of the 370Z design language is featured in the front end, and I can see the GT-R element in there. Wheels are cool, too. :)
