SHIFT's main car revealed///Video Render Added///Wallpaper in the works///Forums back online

Leading Vehicle

SHIFT's main car for Story mode is revealed

The primary vehicle upon which the story is based around is a used Bosozoku styled Nissan 240SX. The real life counterpart belongs to Andrew Abello of California, United States. The car has an abundance of character and personality and was the perfect choice for SHIFT's intro loaner car in the story. It fits the gritty feel that SHIFT hopes to deliver. You can see how the styling of the vehicle is makeshift yet still aggressive. The plot and story behind the car and its previous owner are still being kept under wraps.

Below is the preview of the 1920x1200 wallpaper that will be made available shortly.


The model version was created by the talented 3D artist Laurens Corjin.

The wallpaper I imagine is a render. The rest appear in-game.

Good work there.

Sorry for being late, but they are not in-game. They are from the 3D Studio Max viewport, using a realtime shader. ;)
