Everyone's got their favorite superheroes, and their reasons for liking them. Ours drive cool cars. Comic-book-turned-big-screen do-gooders like Batman (and his mild-mannered alter-ego Bruce Wayne) and Iron Man (Tony Stark). That's just one of the reasons we're stoked for The Driver.

The animated series-in-the-making centers around a mysterious vigilante who chases down criminally reckless drivers on the streets of Los Angeles, and a shutterbug sidekick who follows him around as he puts the baddies to shame in Gorillaz-style animation. It's shaping up to be as car-obsessed as the best of us, and after launching the first trailer back in April of 2010, the creators have now (the better part of two years later) released some additional footage. Follow the jump to see Nissan's 370Z square off against its own GT-R.

      "Follow the jump to see Nissan's 370Z square off against its own GT-R." It's a 350Z. For Chrissake, it says so right on the video. Don't you guys proofread anything?

        They made a wise choice picking that one. A used 350z seems like quite the bargain these days.

      looks like a wraith animated rip off.

      So you have a vigilante 'hero' who takes it upon himself to stop 'criminally reckless drivers' by doing what?...following the speed limit or directing traffic? Chasing down reckless drivers might not be reckless but it doesn't subtract the number of cars going fast weaving through traffic either...it's a big plot hole.

      Nice homage to Initial D putting an AE86 there.

      My original comment kinda disappeared so I'm gonna write my opinion again. There is part of this trailer that looks a awful lot like the 1986 movie "The Wraith". Somebody noticing the same thing? Check this out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9QNDycDirxA

      just thought I would check back and see if it was changed. It's not, why am I not surprised. Your laziness just lost a reader.
