Computer animation studio FXNine has given us this jewel of a CG racing duel, pitting a red Acura NSX against a yellow Lamborghini Diablo, and it is one hell of a ride.

Called Overdrive, the video has a distinctive Matrix-like feel to it. The two supercars race down empty, fictitious, often pointless but entirely entertaining empty highways, going up and down ramps, underwater, around corkscrews and loops and through the air.

If you liked The Matrix and like cars (which we assume you do, otherwise you wouldn't be here), you'll love this video. Follow the link to watch.

      Anybody want to translate the Korean signs? It's pretty obvious what they probably say, but it'd be funny if they said something like "Hey, you idiot! There's a mile-high vertical road to nowhere ahead! Stop driving already you morons!"

      Cool video.

      503 error.

      Google says it says:

      The hose [thing] it is received a service and it follows there is a traffic dosage which is promised in service category and.
      The traffic will yell the visitor groove [phey] and when connecting, the data (text, image, music and video) of the home page which it connects being under moving with PC of the visitors, the data which moves like this to pass over the traffic dosage which is promised and to be intercepted.

      It listens an example and the hose of traffic 100M [thing] there is a home page which uses a service. To this home page 1M musical files are coming to raise, 100 name visitors the knock-down road receive this file, or, they are listened, when music, it means that the traffic excess appears.
      If consequently, the home page is composed of only a text, the many visitors connection are possible, the home page ramyon which the data where the dosage of the musical or video back back is many are coming to raise the number of the visitors it will be able to connect will be restricted they mean.

      heh.

      Great video, but not very realistic: That sloppy slow Honda slag wouldn't have a chance against the Lambo.

      Koreans are very talented especially when it comes to these computer animations. I think it's a cool video and very well choreographed. Maybe it was "chu seok" so all the people are in their hometowns (that explains the empty highways). During big holidays, you can expect heavy traffic in Korea with almost everyone driving back to their hometowns. Can you imagine if you got stuck in traffic and you had to pass those loop roads?! :)

      Sweet...So realistic (the graphics, not the "vertical road leading to nowhere").

      I love the shot of the water droplet on the Acura's mirror.
