I remember traveling up to Birmingham Cars and Coffee when I first started with all this nonsense. There were a bunch of people all scrambling around, some carrying cameras some just there to gawk. But there was always a guy who stood out. I’d notice he was taking a bit more time with his shots, being a bit more deliberate, and waiting for things to clear up. It always kinda made me laugh, “look there’s another guy like me out here doing the same stupid stuff I am!” I didn’t talk to him the couple times I saw him. It’s strange how I can remember those days but I can’t remember how I actually met that guy. Because now he’s not “that guy” he’s fucking Chili, and he’s a fantastic friend of mine. I love him to death and we’ve done a lot together. It’s so crazy for me to think about it. I remember when we first started hanging out we were both blown away by how much we had in common. The love of obscure cars, synth wave, gundam, car photography, and a whole bunch of other shit, we were more alike than we knew. It’s so crazy to think how different my first interaction with him is compared to the last time we hung out. The night prior to shooting this set we were hanging out at @highskewl_ ‘s apartment watching medieval mma and sumo wrestling laughing like hyenas until the wee hours of the morning. The next day Chili was kind enough to not only share the best photo location in Birmingham with us, but also to wash my car to make sure it was squeaky clean for photos. He’s an exceptional photographer and car detailer. He’s a proper legend. Which is why his six series is a perfect match for him. I remember talking to him endlessly about getting rid of his LS400 so he could get into another car he loved and I was so happy to see him purchase this. Finally getting to see it in person was awesome and I don’t think I could have had a better opportunity to shoot it than I did. Thank you so much buddy.

Fast Friday - an image from September 2015, with Tanner Foust behind the wheel of the iconic Koenigsegg One:1. The airfield wasn’t long enough to max the car out that day, but Tanner did manage to reach his personal automotive Vmax. A great day.
The perfect Sunday driver.
Seeing this parked in my gramps garage, ever since I was a little boy, has always had me fascinated about the @bentleymotors brand. It was a pleasure to drive this around the countryside today for the first time.
For the beauty. | 📸 @np.engines |

Nighthawks. Remember Edward Hopper’s famous painting? I was reminded of his work when this scene unfolded itself before my eyes at Dijon last weekend. It was Friday night, and qualifying was done for many of the grids, which meant that the cars were ready to be prepared for their races. There is no 9-to-5 mentality in motor racing, and when I left the circuit at sunset, the place was still buzzing with activity. I myself drove off to the hotel in order to check in (I had arrived at the track straight from the autoroute that morning), took ten minutes to freshen up and then hopped on the tram to town to have dinner with a couple of FIA tech boffins. Dinner finished at 11pm and I was at the hotel at 11.30pm at which time I pulled out the laptop for a bit more work. It’s not just the mechanics, in their way the journalists do their hours as well...
The Jaguar XK 140 is the successor to the XK 120 this new Jaguar looks like it but there are important differences!
Like the rack and pinion steering and an exterior finish with larger bumpers and a chrome line crossing this new Jaguar. 🏖
