Rubberband Racing: Cheetah

The Cheetah is the second car I’ve finished for Rubberband Racing.

Compared to the Lilliput, the Cheetah packs a couple more horse powers and reaches higher velocities. At the same time, it still has a vintage feel to it’s sporty design.

3D Preview

Below you will find a preview of what the real time model will look like in the game.

Sorry, either Adobe flash is not installed or you do not have it enabled

You will need Flash Player 11.2 or upwards to view the 3D preview.

In Rubberband Racing, you will be able to choose between several different colors for the car’s body. The chassis of the car uses 1232 triangles, while each wheel clocks in at 148 triangles. This means that this model actually uses fewer polygons than the Lilliput.

Inspirations

The inspirations for the Cheetah were, not very surprisingly, classic sports cars like the Jaguar E Type and the classic Porsche 911.

The Jaguar lent a great deal of it’s proportions and the vents on the top of the engine hood to the design of the Cheetah.

The Porsche, on the other hand, was the source of the round headlights, and the shape of the passenger cab.

The convertible rooftop is a feature both cars sported in some of their versions.

As with the Lilliput, I tried to not only mash together the design of two cars. I also wanted to give it a unique quirk, to give an additional cartoon like quality.

The visual characteristic I went for in this car is to make it “fall backwards”.

Cheetah Design Characteristic

This puts even more emphasis on the front part with the engine and gives the car a “hurried” look. A side effect of this are the comically oversized headlights, but I like this quirk, so I left it in there.
