Local Motors aren't a well known name, but in America they are a niche company that produce the mad looking Rally Fighter. This has a 6.2 litre V8 Corvette powered engine and with a carbon fibre warp looks and sounds amazing, no wonder its appeared in Fast and Furious films and also on Forza Horizon video games...
It's not very often that I get to photograph something as unique as a Local Motors Rally Fighter. Typically, you'll only see this amazing off-road machine in movies or playing Forza Horizon 3. The car is produced in the US and customers are invited to build the vehicle in the Local Motors factory, think of it as a Caterham on steroids and with four wheel drive!

I met owner Martin just outside of Dartford in a remote industrial estate, the sun was out with deep blue skies and using the Profoto lights it produced great detail with the carbon fibre wrap and being completely black the lighting was key to lifting the details of the Rally Fighter. The car photography is for a future edition of Street Machine magazine, its a bit of a coup getting this cars as it is (I believe) the inly one in the UK!
