Westfield camera car

Recommended Posts

Apparently film crews favor fast SUVs like the Cayenne for filming high speed car and motorcycle video.  A German film production company, however, has seen the light and gone bike-engine Westfield.  More photos are here and a video of it in action is here.

They claim it's a Westfield.  The scuttle, dash and transmission tunnel look like Wesfield items, but upon closer examination the windscreen is wrong, the door sill appears to be angled rather than parallel with the ground, and the way the rear arches attach is wrong.  I wonder of it is a Westfield chassis with a bunch of liberties taken with bodywork, or maybe they started with a pre-lit and upgraded?

Gotta be for a specific shoot. Can't see that lasing long with the extra weight of the Russian Arm. They're usually 3 axis, geo-stabilised and with huge hydraulics to operate them, to say nothing of all the gear needed to operate the camera...

Yup, square tunnel and the contoured "legs" on the dash say pre-lit to me too.

480kg? Must be at it's winter weight :d

Andy Bates has just finished one for a customer at 488kg (with a full cage) and 200bhp, so it does seem ballpark.
