    Default Se7en camera car

    Apparently fast SUVs have become the standard camera cars for high speed automotive and motorcycle video work. A German film production company, however, has taken a different approach and decided to add some lightness in the form of a bike-engined Westfield. Slide show here, and video of it in action is here.

    Hmm... Although the article called it a Westfield, upon closer examination, I'm not sure what this is. It has some Westfield elements (scuttle, dash, transmission tunnel) but some Caterham elements as well (door sill angle, rear wings/tub interface, windscreen pillars). Whatever it is, it's a more interesting camera car than a Cayenne.

    We've used various SUV camera cars, mostly porsche-mounted. they have transformed action filming. This is like some of the motorcycle-platform camera systems, but on a more stable platform. Cool idea.
