    So happy that the 458 is getting some much deserved love!
    One thing that for me is trully dated on this car is the wheel blur. Would be fantastic to see it more akin to AC's McLaren MP4-12C style blurred rims. The star shape on the 458 is similar and Mac looks terrific in motion.

    Oh wow, so it is possible! Super!
    The blurred rims do look good already in your shot, but if I may suggest a couple of minor tweeks: firstly, accents to the the wheel nut and a bit of black stripe near the nuts;

    secondly, maybe do away with the large chrome circle around the yellow logo, the nuts accents should supersede it anyway and there are no other parts that may create this circle in motion.

    Lastly , maybe thin the blurred star of the overall rims a little (like in pic of the real thing), its a bit fat and wrong shape atm.
    But very nice work, many thanks for the updates!

    I'm not sure if one foto is enough to look at because it all comes down to the shutter speed of the camera. Check these:

    Oh shutter can do this for sure, the point is that shutter setting that makes star rims visible is just much cooler than the blurred circle we have atm. Not just my opinion, but see Top Gear camera man's shutter settings - the stars are there in full:
    @1:10-1:13; 2:18-2:22;


    Chris Harris's cameraman too:
    @0:54-1:04


    5th gear :
    at 1:11 etc etc


    Its just a cool cool sight, so why not recreate it in AC? Kunos did with the McLaren (and many/most other cars too), so yeah... :)
