    It would seem easier to have multiple cars. The cut-away and one or more normal cars for driving. Or even one or more ‘buc’s of just the interior, shot from hood framed by windshield, et al.

  2. Chris from Lakeland, FL says:

    @ James, maybe easier, but when you are dealing with million dollar prototypes, a year or so out from introduction, probably not cheaper.

    It does seem as if the tech guys might want some electric or pneumatic impact drivers, instead of hand-driven ratchets. Maybe the time lapse just makes it appear that the hand-ratcheting seems to be a speed bump.

    Talk about the ultimate convertible! Very clever.
