2009 GT-R, a look from above!

May 22: Nissan made a GT-R available to licensees for an hour each. Despite crazy weather with hail, torrential rain and even a few tornadoes around Los Angeles it was bright and sunny at the shoot site in Torrance. You can see a shadow of yours truly up on a 16-foot ladder capturing the body shape from above. The air scoops are an interesting detail. Set into slight bulges on the hood, their NACA-duct shape and contrasting color make them stand out. Underneath the hood, a duct (yellow arrow) from each scoop directs air into the engine.
