Newport with hood scoops
« Reply #15 on: May 26, 2011, 07:24:44 AM »

I really like the way they did the hood treatment.  The mat black and the A-body scoops really look good on the car.

If you watch a few of the other vids you'll see that it's in Europe....Germany if I'm not mistaken.

It's a simple question that no way implies there is something worng.  What it "could " be is not the issue.  Where was it shot? is my question.

i have to say. I Love the way that car is done. well the hood could have been all black, but nice anyways. and yes the headlights do look european, but whats wrong with it. kind of a road rallying look.

Yellow headlights are not typical for Europe. In Europe, due to regulations, the original sealed beams have to be discarded because of the inferior lightpattern and usually also poor light intensity. In most countries, they will also allow yellow. In France its been mandatory until somewhere in the 80ies or 90ies, the reasoning behind it being that its less blinding for oncoming traffic.

The movie was filmed in Germany, you can tell by the German classic-plates (H-plate, red characters) and also on the benz which features regular German plates.

I like the things they did on this car.
