The 2003 Bentley Speed 8 was created specifically to win Le Mans. It was the culmination of a several-year effort by the team and designer Peter Elleray. Not until many years later would some of the aero trickery emerge from its shroud of mystery under the menacing bodywork.

Rough work on the core chassis and tricky front bodywork build. Intent here is to make sure the shaping is right and to find out what improvements need to be made so the surfaces build easily.

Quite happy with the Peugeot's proportions and shaping, so work turns to refinements to sub-assemblies - this is when all the dependencies between the parts begin to make adjustments more difficult.

The list of Peugeot to-dos is growing shorter... Got the body to about 90% sorted with lots of nudging and smoothing, and worked up the front tusks and snorkel intakes. Need to tackle the interior bits next, then I'll do some renders of the bare chassis. :)

After some extensive research, I've got the lineage of this car's development over its 4 seasons mapped out (2007-2010, inclusive). While there were many small changes across the car, the most visible external evolution over that time was focussed on the rear panels and the shaping of the rear fenders. This means the forward bodywork and chassis can carry through all versions... Le Mans low-drag nose being a notable exception.

The 2009/2010 version with the ACO's narrow-wing regulations is modeled here.

Nailed down the technical source drawings for the Peugeot 908 (2008~2010) and started CAD work over the last week or so. Much more smoothing and detail to come, but off to a solid start.
