Liberty Walk has gotten a lot of love on this site lately, and its insanely wide and low project cars are a big reason why. But while it's always great to see Wataru Kato and crew's latest big-fender creations, most of the time, we only catch 'em sitting pretty next to stick-like trade show models.
Adrenalin’s nearly three-minute preview is a proper homage to DTM’s history, but the transition to interviews with modern drivers and race footage is just as cool. Seeing today’s winged, big-fender Beemers take the fight to modern Audis is a great bookend for what promises to be an exciting movie.
This film starts in a dark garage where we’re introduced to an object of Craft’s affection: a red 1987 325is in all its glory. In addition to nice touches like the dramatic camera angles, Craft introduces his baby through interesting audio as well: the sharp pop of the hood, the scratching of a grimy oil fill cap being turned and the E30’s sewing machine-like idle add a really interesting dimension to this scene.
For the enthusiasts in Owen Craft’s "Respect Your Elders," trailer, the answer always starts with an M—but it sure as hell ain’t a Miata. This documentary gives a unique look into the fascinating love-fest with the BMW E30, the run of 1982-1991 3 Series and M3 cars that one owner explains as, “Literally as pure as you can get.”
The short clip opens with a BMW already rocketing several feet above the race course, cresting a hill. The car’s nose begins to dive, appearing to travel over 150 feet before making a very gruesome landing.
