The Creamsicle ; Brian's nsx
"Hi. I'm Brian Urlage, and I'm an addict."
I think we all stopped counting after Brian's 10th, but if you ask him he'll see he's rounding the corner on 20 NSX's. He has been building, driving, and adoring these vehicles as long as I've known the guy and his passion for the history of the NSX motorsports is so palpable you can just sense it by hanging out the guy...then again...he's usually surrounded by a few NSX's every time I see him so maybe that's just it.
The creamsicle actually started out it's life as a track car up in New York, but was later purchasing by the NSX Club of America treasurer. He and his wife enjoyed the car as a daily driver as well as enjoying some track days. This was their 3rd NSX at the time (must be nice, right?). It was put into a wall at the New Jersey motorsports park which took out the entire passenger side aluminum out. The fender, door, quarter panel, all toast. They chose not to fix it, but still wanted the car's legacy to continue. This is where Brian kicked in. They called Brian b/c they didn't want the car to be junked, and if anyone can do up an NSX, it's definitely Brian.
Brian picked up the car and decided to resurrect her into something delicious. He had never done a widebody and this was the perfect candidate. The original color was 1 of 4 sebring silver on Ivory interior cars he's ever built (YES 1 OF 4!). It was wrapped in a customed dyed 3m vinyl and the interior has been swapped all over to black. The car will be utilized for track use in 2012 once the car is setup correctly. The car got a fresh rebuild 15k , increased the compression slightly, and rebuilt the trans. The car is sitting on CCW 18x9.5 front and 18x11 rears wrapped in Toyo R888's. Tein coilovers, CT sway bars, H&R spacers really set this thing off accompanied with the widebody kit. Pride v.1 exhaust and CT test pipes looks quite nice as well. Brian plans to slap on a Science of Speed Twin Turbo Kit in 2012, which I actually expected seeing as this is one of the FEW n/a NSX'S i've seen Brian actually own, lol.
The shot was done with multiple layers, painting the car with a LED light source, layers, curve adjustments, sharpening, cloning, shadowing, etc etc etc. This particular shot was done with my 5dmk2 + 17-40.
Hope you enjoy, and expect to see more of this car in 2012!
