great stuff it is! the car at the very beginning zooms in so fast and impressive on 030, engine is damn good! the whole demo is quite chaotic and kinda out of concept, but a lot of fun to watch nevertheless.
get fix for 040/060 here:

Nice one, still watchin' it sometimes in WHDload which is the best way to execute the demo with 060

Skarla team rulez !
Jamie was probably one of the most underrated coder at that time, never understand why, he made some of the best amiga code ever ! Of course it can be a little hard to run it on some amiga but from this period it was something "normal".

Strong thumb up !

Like the other demos from Essence, it has strong engine and nice 3D.

Technically great, but perhaps a bit to well optimized for 030. The whdload team saved my day.

yeah right... wicked stuff! seeing this on my 030 blew me away...

excellent demo for 030.

Some "inspired" scenes but really good for 030

Seems like fast routines. Would have loved to see the 1800 poly VW on this engine :)
Sound was a bit weak and gfx of 3D's

not so keen on the 3d, but the music and rest is nice.

Didn't much fancy this one back in the day as it bugged terribly on my 060. But it is quite a nice demo, and the speed on 030 is incredible!

Didn't age that well but back in the 90s I liked it. Specially the code was extremely fast on 030 (and more or less incompatible with any high CPU).

"high" = "higher". And thumb as well.

Good shit

Just watch this too. Fastest 1x1 3d engine in the 030. This proves it's possible in contrast with numerous 2x2 stuff that doesn't even run as well sometimes.

Killer demo in 1997, gr8 stuff!

In fact, demo running on 68o3o looks amazing.
