    This is awesome. You are a baest at modelling autos! I've learned a ton from your models, especially this one and the older one from the blender interior render BMW. Awesome, awesome model and render!

    Maybe you should try Nvidia's Geforce TITAN GPU that just came out yesterday although it is $1000!

    Check this out rendered animation along with the machine stats and rendering time in the description!

    Here is the TITAN link -

    If Apple ever comes out with a new Mac Pro I am going to go with the TITAN.

    Just got a refurb HP Z600 with Dual Xeon X5650 2.66GHZ CPUs, 12 total cores. Running Windows 7 64bit and Blender version 2.74 Video card is an old and slow Quadro FX1800 and not supported for GPU rendering but CPU render time was 1 min 33 seconds with Hyper Threading off and 1 min 15 seconds with Hyper Threading on. Update Just added Nvidia GTX 960 to this PC and it took 67 seconds to finish

    I have an i5 2320 quad core running 3.0ghz, 6GB ram with a GTX 680 running a triple monitor setup and it ran the GPU render in 1 min and 5 seconds.

    mikepan, this is really great. What about low-poly modelling? Have you tried modelling car at around 10K polys? It'd be great to see such a work from you:)
