2012 Infiniti IPL Coupe

Photography can be a tool for many different purposes. Commercial photography - especially product photography; can be utilized for technical and instructional diagrams or more commonly for marketing and advertising. Car photography presents many complex challenges. Controlling light, reflections and shadows on a large object with multiple reflective surfaces such as a car, can require a lot of patience and often a fair amount of work in post production. I shot photos of my car in the Mojave Desert as part of a promotional/marketing shoot for the Infiniti Dealership I purchased it from. On that note... I went by my Infiniti dealer to check out a new Q50s - and I learned that Infiniti has discontinued the IPL Coupe. I'm so bummed. I've owned a dozen performance sports cars and this IPL has been my favorite. 348hp stock, mine is pushing 360hp - due to some mods... the size, weight, handling, and 7 speed transmission... it's the right mix of agility, speed, luxury, and it surprisingly gets around 25 miles per gallon - with my normal driving/commute. Highway/freeway can boost me to nearly 30mpg. I'm sad that Infiniti/Nissan did away with what was the 2nd most powerful sports car behind the GTR. I made the decision that I am going to keep my IPL. which means that instead of trading my IPL in on another or for the Q50S... I can't get a new IPL... so I'll have to add the Q50S.

I have done a few shoots involving cars myself and I totally agree that lighting is the key. Like you said the large reflective surface will pick up a lot and it's hard to control!
You are better off keeping that beauty! Was one of the cars I wanted growing up. Im jealous
@jonpatrickhyde you're right. I was thinking of the g35 haha.
@EightyNine - I need two cars... well. Need is an exaggeration. I love sports cars. But I do need a 4 - door for business purposes - I sometimes need to pick up clients or talent, and I need to be able to carry a fair amount of equipment. The IPL is for sure a keeper. BTW - you can't be that old since the IPL Coupe was introduced in 2011 and only made for 4 years (2011-2014). Unless you are talking about the G35/G37 - Which are similar. @dillonk - Yes! Cars are very difficult to shoot. I've been on desert shoots where the only way to cut the sunlight and control the shadows was to suspend a 40 ft by 40 ft silk, suspended from a crane, above the car.

2022 Lamborghini Huracan:More Powerful
A version of the 2022 Lamborghini Huracan equipped with Xian's unusual hybrid setup indicates the automaker's transition to electrification. Thanks to a long period of preparation and promotion, Lamborghini will launch the long-awaited version of the Lamborghini Huracan in 2022. This shiny new V12 supercar, unlike its predecessor, will feature a hybrid powertrain. The launch of the new car also marks the first step for the brand, which is making its own upgrades for the electric era. The new flagship, produced by the Sant'Agata manufacturer, will be unveiled this year. It will go on sale shortly before the arrival of the plug-in hybrid version of the Urus SUV. The 2022 Lamborghini Huracan will reportedly be the last series-produced Lamborghini supercar to use the company's fabled 6.5-liter V12 engine. After it, the subsequent generation may be electrically powered. The age of electrification is upon us. Despite the sudden burst of the Covid-19 pandemic, Lamborghini posted the second-best financial performance in its history in 2020. According to the company's boss, Stephan Winkelmann, 2022 is a time of stability and immersion before the automotive industry begins to move on to the next phase in 2022. In addition, Winkelmann said the first task is to embrace a clear vision of what electrification will mean for the brand. And what improvements and adjustments should be made to capture a promising future. To keep up with the trends, the company needs to keep Lamborghini by reinventing Lamborghini, which means changing everything, not changing anything. Winkelmann said that the main priority this year is the launch of the Huracán Super Trofeo Omologato, and he gave a small hint that two new V12 machines will enter the public eye in 2022. Of course, Winkelmann would not reveal the exact details of these models. Some sources indicate that as for the two new V12 machines, one of them is based on the final special edition of the Aventador, using supercapacitor technology similar to that of the 808bhp Sián FKP 37 supercar. The other will be the first glimpse of a replacement for the Aventador. The following generation of the V12 flagship has been pulled several times due to many complicating factors. The postponement is partly due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, but mainly due to Lamborghini's decision to develop hybrid technology. This advanced technology will meet the needs of its buyers and the character of its super cars. According to Winkelmann, Lamborghini is falling back on a dilemma. The marque is now struggling to deal with it. The challenge is to obey the new requests of lawmakers while not disappointing customers in the coming years. Emblematic of Lamborghini is still thinking about the extra weight of the expansive hybrid system and its impact on the performance of the supercar. And the company is said to be working on a system that pairs lithium-ion batters with supercapacitors to greatly improve their performance.

Isuzu Mu Tow Review
Given its long history, the Isuzu MU-X might be an old warrior now. So compared with its rivals, it might not be able to win the cut-throat competition or even level the playing field. Despite it, there is no denying that it ranks the top when people discuss the cost-effective towing vehicles. During the lockdown period, many of you send direct enquiries and we also answer questions and get back to you with our advice as quick as we can. Because what a lot of people ask is the 2020 Isuzu MU-X, we decide to give you a details introduction. First of all, although it is a fact that Isuzu MU-X has excellent towing capability, plenty of you is eager to know how it performs as a tow vehicle. It’s a question that frequently appears on our radio shows, email box or direct to the website comment. It is said that Isuzu MU-X seems to be replaced and weeded out by other rivals. But as far as I am concerned, the replacement is impossible. The time has witnessed the increase in the number of buyers thinking about a caravan purchase and regional travel. Thus as a practical and versatile model, Isuzu MU-X will only thrive. So with this purpose in mind, our testers go to the Blue Mountains west of Sydney to find out how the MU-X behaved with just over 2000kg in tow. Maybe there is a great amount of reasons for you to choose to buy a Isuzu MU-X, but I dare to say that among many reasons, the most outstanding one is its value proposition. It is very cost-effective in comparison with other models. At the time of testing, you can just cost $54,990 to get a Isuzu MU-X LS-T 4x4 with a drive-away deal , which is surly sharp value when you compare it to higher-spec models from the direct competition. Coupled with that sharp pricing, Isuzu boasts its  3.0-litre turbo diesel four-cylinder, which gets the growing reputation of bulletproof reliability. More importantly, this engine that is seemingly impervious to hard work, that is to say, it is superb in durability and practicality. There's a reason people often use the word "venerable" when talking about Isuzu's 3.0-liter fueler. Isuzu seems to use this engine all the time, and in fact it only second to Ford's 3.2-liter 5-cylinder in terms of diesel engine capacity. It always works effortlessly and uses very little fuel. It also produces 130kW at 3600 rpm and 430Nm between 2000 rpm and 2200 rpm, despite its relatively low power and torque. What’s most interesting about the way the engine works is its sound. It’s not refined but enthusiastic, just like a farmer working happily. However, when you settle into a relaxed cruise at any speed really, it will become quiet a lot. You probably won't hear as much noise if you play videos and listen to music in the car, which is what we noticed in our testing. Whether carrying or unloading, going up or down hills, on the highway or around town, the car performed perfectly. Real world driving experience shows that numbers on paper don't always matter so much, after all, practice is what you make of it.
