Welcome to the future of racing! Here we have a new conceptual movie, the product of director Christopher and modeler Greg Desantis, which features high-tech racers blasting across the California flats. The purpose of the fictitious race, which is known as the Bonneville Classic 5000 (but as Shogun Tango amongst its participants), is all about testing the most powerful vehicles in the world.
One look and I think you’ll agree, the look of the video is pretty damn spectacular. You got racing hovercars, monitoring satellites, and what appear to be called “jump gates”. Sound like any futuristic video games you’ve played lately? According to Greg, the team “made the movie in our spare time over about a year. A few people have asked if it is a viral for Virgin, it’s not. We just thought the film would be cooler with real logos, than with fake or generic logos.”
