Hyperleggera

About

This publication was intended as a vehicle of reverie for the waning days of the automobile, to bridge the gap between Lamborghini Miuras and scramjet-powered hypersonic jetliners that transform into ekranoplans at will. It was not a car blog. Hyperleggera was active between June 2008 and October 2009, and was created by the people listed below.

He commands developers by day and does the magic with photographs by night. See his digital work at Indafotó and his medium-format work at 645, his personal site. If he catches you double-dip a tortilla chip, he will crush you.

If those hallucinations of blue bunnies have ever driven you to seek help, you may already know him. You’ll find him detangling the brains of Pennsylvanian crazies in the ER or ensnaring himself in late-night automotive subcultures.

When not brewing espressos, our UK man stalks the supercar-saturated streets of Russian oligarchs with camera in hand. Loaded up with his prey, he returns home to perfect cyanoacrylate-based hair products.

They say she makes killer tiramisù, wears Chinese silk scarves as blouses and has had her amygdala hormonally modified. All we know is she solves problems, drives wicked fast and disguises herself as Marilyn Monroe on Fridays.
