They’re filming part of a new Jeff Bridges movie, R.I.P.D., in Boston’s Downtown financial district. We happened through the area last weekend, so we got to see a lot of work being done as the film crew got ready to shoot a car scene. And that’s when I saw this:
It’s the Ultimate Arm Car, and chances are you’ve watched a few movies that utilized its camera-handling skills. This Porsche Cayenne Turbo is completely blacked-out in a matte black to prevent any glares or reflections from the car showing up on camera. Other features include a custom tail flap to keep dirt and debris from kicking up and oh yeah, a giant gyroscopic jib mounted to the roof.
Ultimate Arm car driver – that doesn’t sound like a bad gig! Where can I put in my application for that job?
