Camilo Pardo creates his limited-edition "Her Targets" – Click above for high-res image gallery

Camilo Pardo is a name many of you will recognize. He's the man responsible for bringing the Ford GT40 back to life in its modern Ford GT form. Besides penning beautiful automobiles, Pardo also works in other art mediums. The designer has created a very limited-edition run of prints, and the hand-signed work is available at a surprisingly affordable price. Each of the 45 prints is up on 1xRUN.com, a site dedicated to providing limited-edition artwork at low prices. The cost for each print is $80 – Pardo's other work often commands over a thousand dollars, so this is something of a bargain.

If you're interested, you might want to act quickly because all 45 prints ought to move quickly at that price. You can see Pardo's racy take on Chip Ganassi Target Racing's team racing suit in our gallery below or head straight to 1xRUN to grab an example for yourself.

      Nice shirt but I've not much to say about his prints.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Boooooobies...
      • 4 Years Ago
      Wait, but aren't those the designs All of us kicked out in Graphic Design 201?
        • 4 Years Ago
        Let's see your portfolio.

      The guy is clearly incredibly talented, and I gotta say that I really like those prints.

      Too bad there aren't a set of them - I could see that design used on other racing-themed prints with different images on them.

        Car design is as much art (designers) as it is science (engineers). Form and function are intertwined.

        I hate to sound like a jerk, but the Ford GT's exterior was pretty much a direct pull from the original car, just about 20% larger...

        This art is interesting, but it's nothing some kid fresh outta school couldn't work up...

        So taking both of those things into account...what's so special about this guy? Seriously, someone fill me in because I'm kinda lost here...

        He is incredibly talented for sure, though I'm not sure one can evaluate that based solely on this series of prints. I've seen many of the guy's paintings in his gallery, been to one of his fashion shows, and man, it's a jaw dropping experience. Yes, the OG GT40 was great, but when you see them right next to one another in the flesh, so to speak, you really see how much he was able to improve upon the original in so many details without ever violating its character. The two cars serve very different purposes and were built with vastly different technologies, but they are equally awesome.

        @ elpepe:
        Damn! You beat me to it. Just shows again how little most people really know about the industry. Glad you pointed it out.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Actually, Hazdaz, all the things you talk about (mass production considerations, streetability, serviceability etc.) are the responsobility of a team of engineers, not the designer....

        :facepalm:

        If you think the new GT is "just about 20% larger" than the old racecar, then you might want to take a look at both of them side by side. The fact that one of them is an all-out racecar with no consideration for mass production, nor street use or costs, while the other has to take into account all those things (and more, such as streetability, serviceability, a wide-range of drivers, etc) is a testament to how talented this guy is in keeping the looks and themes of the original intact.

        Usually it takes more talent to make a successor to a popular/famous/loved design than it does to make a clean-sheet brand new one.

        If someone has to explain art to you then there is really no point.

      Meh...he's a talented guy, although quite annoying in person, but this is just not very special, unique , exciting, interesting, etc...

      Cars and boobs, doesn't get any better than that.
      • 4 Years Ago
      pretty cool
      • 4 Years Ago
      Those are some large areola.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I avoid putting things on my wall that would get me weird looks
      • 4 Years Ago
      Damn. I would GT those Targets .
      • 4 Years Ago
      That should have broad appeal with middle school age boys.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I was thinking the very same thing. So juvenile. Have we men really not progressed beyond stupid stuff like this?
        • 4 Years Ago
        So juvenile that I simply have to ask... why the heck is it on Autoblog? Because the guy helped design the GT? That's weak. And I was thinking the same thing, have men not progressed past this kind of childishness?
