Aeromaster LMP

Aeromaster LMP is a replica of the 2003 Bentley Speed 8 LMP prototype car that won “Le Mans” back in 2003. However, some changes and improvements were made on the body to better suit the kit car nature of the built (for example, the original car didn’t had proper weatherstripping on the doors), and the tubular chassis allows a wide variety of engines and transmissions to be used.
The car is produced by “Aeromaster sports cars” Co.,Ltd at Sofia, Bulgaria. www.aero-master.com

Thank you for the kind words! That project was mainly developed between 2009 and 2011, and I consider it as my biggest step into the free-form modeling with Rhino, because it had some challenging complex surface transitions that required lots of experimenting with new techniques. Bentley Speed 8 is the perfect car model for Rhino CAD modelers to improve their skills and I encourage everyone to try to recreate it.

Wow, really? :smiley: What was the surprise for you?

Reminds me of a neighbor across the street who built official indy and funny cars in his garage. Good job!

Thanks! It’s fascinating to experience the development and build of such a project from the ground up. The first new Pro chassis with Ø45 mm tubes already takes shape and will be ready soon. :slight_smile:

Now that we have the new Aeromaster custom rims and custom brake calipers in place, the most fun part comes to install them on the first prototype Aeromaster Pro chassis whose welding just finished. :slight_smile:

Test fitting of the main suspension components on the bare chassis. Can’t wait to see it painted in charcoal dark grey. :slight_smile:
