BA Sprint / BA with EA-style headlights

Hi Everyone,

Was an XR6. Thought I'd try a reverse angle on the sides of the headlights, lower it, put my wheels on it, straighten the side skirt, and name it a Sprint. Does anyone think it looks alright?

Regards,

Andrew.

Using Fireworks, I removed the spoiler, then I used the rubber stamp tool to copy and fill out the water where the spoiler was, then redrew the bootline and filled in the top side of the boot with more rubber-stamped copy of the painted panel.

Interesting. Ford needs to bring back the Sprint - limited build number, subtle styling but major kick arse performance.

Re: BA Sprint / BA with EA-style headlights

Blackout,

My original intention was to adjust and reverse the side angles on the "wrap-around" front headlight units. Too many cars these days are coming out with angles that go along with the wheel arc, like this slash: /

In my picture, the front headlights end like this on the side: \

I then had the idea to strip it of the spoiler and flamboyant side skirt, then lower it, give it a different colour, and call it a revived Sprint, to be interesting. Also had to give it the wheels from my car.

The AU series had a mostly continuous slope to the front headlights. This design would have an almost flat top line, as per BA, but with reversed angle down the side of the headlight. Makes it look more like certain last model BMWs in my opinion.

Andrew.

Another angle.. front side. It doesn't look as good as from the profile side I think, but I thought I'd see what it was like.
