Saleen S7R Vector by p3nx Saleen S7R Vector by p3nx
Saleen S7R
Saleen introduced the S7, the first true American supercar. The Saleen S7R’s 7-liter racing V8 generates 600 horsepower and is capable of speeds in excess of 200 miles per hour. With its extreme ground effects engineering, the car could be driven upside down at 160 mph and still stay attached to the road !!

Vector | Illustrator CS2 | 20+ hrs
Well this is my most complex vector piece so far. Took about 3 weeks on and off to complete, glad it is finally done.
No mesh on this one, just normal fill, gradients and blends.
Thanks to *CRWPitman for the blending tutorial.

As usual CnCs are welcome :D

Saleen S7R Vector by ~p3nx "It's really one of the most amazing car vectors I've ever seen. The detail, lighting and not to mention the colours are amazing." ( Suggested by Sander-Seto and Featured by Ikue )

Very nice work. One of my personal favorite cars is the Porsche Carrera GT which is one of the most beautiful cars ever built. This car also inspired me for a painting in Adobe Illustrator (2-D, using no mesh/no grid for gradients) from another interesting angle. See here: exotic-legends.deviantart.com/…
Also see the detail-links in the attachment of the picture-description.

I usually don't like cars, and have nothing to do with them, including art. However, this vector is amazing! When I clicked on this I honestly couldn't believe it was a vector! Keep up the great work!

here's the tutorial : [link]
but with the new transparent gradient feature in illustrator cs5, we could use that to replace this blending technique..
