Critical Section


the ultimate driving machine

I'm in San Diego, and I'm walking along the nice little boardwalk between the convention center and the bay, convalescing, and I see something up ahead...  what the heck is that?  ...  it looks like, huh ... holy crap, IT IS -- TRIZILLA!

Trizilla - BMW Oracle

Yep, right in front of me, there it was, good ‘ol BMW Oracle just arrived, and they let me walk into the compound and take pictures and everything.  Of course I only had my cameraphone so they’re crummy pics.

The sheer size and scale of this monster are tough to grasp until you’re standing next to it.  I think the spar was the most amazing thing of all – seemed like it was ten feet wide, and two hundred feet long.

Here is a picture of the bird in flight, you may remember from an earlier post:

Trizilla - BMW Oracle

90' long x 100' wide x 160' high.  It could go under the Coronado Bridge.  With 15' to spare :)

What an amazing craft. I’d sure love to take it for a test drive :)
