Engraved Blueprint Art and Wall Art

Porsche 911 Turbo (996) blueprint art specs and info! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porsche_996

Just realized today that I have never even rode in a Porsche, much less had the chance to drive one. Anyone in Colorado want to take me for a ride:) Free art! It never ceases to amaze me the design and refinement of these engines. From the first Mezger engines to today's. I think the only thing that even comes close in size to power is a rotary engine. Either way this 996 911 Turbo car blueprint drawing is sure to turn heads for any car enthusiast. If you are just looking for some Porsche artwork for your own garage or perhaps as a gift here you go!

 

Also as always here are the stats that I used.

Dodge Ram 3500 Engraved Blueprint Art

Haven't done a truck yet, and I'd say Dodge is known for their trucks. So this was a no brainer. I choose to do the 02-09 models just because my father owned one on the farm and it still runs great. The 6.7 L Cummins Turbo is a powerhouse and was fun to draw. Here is a list of specs for those that are curious. If someone wants to order a specific Dodge truck or engine pice of artwork shoot me an email. We can do the standard format for the blueprint artwork or a completely custom piece of Dodge Ram Artwork!

1970 Dodger Challenger R/T with 426 Hemi Specs and Info!

Been drawing up this nice piece of American history in hopes that some car enthusiasts will love it and hang it on their wall! I had no idea of all the different options on this car, between trims, engines, axels, and everything else. Dodge gave people a ton of options, but I had to choose the R/T with the the elephant in the room (426 Hemi). I think this represents a favorite, and I know it's mine. 

 

Here is a list of links and info for you guys!

Dodge Chargers And Hemi's!

Alright Dodge and Mopar fans, I am moving onto to American muscle this month and going to focus on building our car art collection for Dodge this month. We started with the newest Viper (still have a few more generations to draw) and now I'm working on the Charger. More specifically the SRT Hellcat. 707 Horsepower in a 4 door car seems just right to me and I love it. I have loved drawing up this Hemi as well. I plan on doing some of the older chargers as well, but figured I'd start with the new Hellcat! So If you don't see your Charger in our Engraved Blueprint Collection area let me know and I can get it drawn up for you. 

 

Here is a list of links to specs and some pretty great reads on the Charger.

2016 Dodge Viper and 8.4 L V10 Specs and Info

I'm just finishing up the artwork for the new 2016 Dodge Viper ACR and this thing is cool. While I'm usually not a fan of huge wings, the ACR pulls it off and with 645 hp I'm sure it can use the downforce. If you have a Dodge viper enthusiast in the family and you are looking to give a gift, we have just the thing! 

As always here are all the specs,

In search of the facts! BMW Engine Info

        Not only does our car art take a ton of time to draw, there is also a ton of research that has to be completed. We end up sorting through a lot of sources from forum postings, manuals, websites, brochures and more. In the past we have completed the project without regard to the wealth of information we had accumulated and simply moved onto the next thing. Then it dawned on us, why the heck aren't we sending this information out into the world for an easy reference for people who might not know where it was? For now on we are going to "cite" our work with these blog postings titled "In search of the facts" that will coincide with the engraved art we will be releasing! Please if you have more info, or links leave a comment and let everyone benefit.

 

First up is for the new BMW M3s and M4's that have the S55 engine in them. Pretty exciting in general that BMW is offering this twin turbo monster. In drawing this engine blueprint up here are the sources we used and came across.

 

Very useful thread with Complete F80 M3 / F82 M4 technical docs and S55 engine technical doc.
