Thanks to the hard work from Kuririn84, japanese_cake and Eric Fradella we now have the pleasure of playing a new unreleased title for the Dreamcast, Millenium Racer: Y2K Fighters. 

The game is a Sci-Fi future racing game with influences from Tron and Wipeout, it did actually get a full release on PC in 1999.

For more information on how this happened and how you can play it yourself check this article posted by Tom from the Dreamcast-Junkyard.

So to celebrate I thought I'd knock up some cover artwork based around the PAL variation.

Metropolis Street Racer Vauxhall VX220 - Opel/Daewoo Speedster - Slides/Negatives

I managed to secure these a while back, they are the slides/negatives from the photos taken of the Vauxhall VX220 (known as the Opel Speedster outside of the UK and the Daewoo Speedster for the Asian market) for the promotion of Metropolis Street Racer.

Fans of the game will notice one of the images was featured in magazine adverts and various leaflets included with select Dreamcast games.

Apparently the car used in the photoshoot didn't have an engine so had to be dragged to various shooting spots. In one of the slides you can see some of the rigging at the rear of the car, I'm guessing it was pulled backwards and snapped with a slow shutter to give the illusion of speed.

The photos where taken on 4x5 inch large-format reversal film, this is usually used for high resolution digital scanning.
