Great shot - I can see why you like it!

Apart from the equipment mentioned above, were you using anything else?
Basically I'm trolling for tips on how to best show off a car; I ran
into my car-owning accquaintance the other day and mentioned I was
interested in coming out to shoot his stable.  Apparently he'd been
thinking along those lines, too, so it will almost certainly happen.

He's got an impressive lineup; apart from the Ferrari F360 and the
Lamborgini he recently picked up a new toy - a Bugatti Veyron!
There's also a Viper roadster, and I'm sure one or two others.
I don't know whether he's got a Tesla.

I don't have either the K-7 or 60-250 yet, but I'm sure the K10D
and the trusty FA* 80-200 will suffice.
