Indiana Jones IV - Gadgetry & Gizmos

Here are some examples of the vehicles they will be using for the chase scenes along Chapel Street.
This is a Mitsubishi Lancer kitted out with a crane camera on the roof. The vehicles are painted black so they are less visible in scene reflections. The car is a high spec machine to handle difficult and fast maneuvers and the equipment inside and out looks extremely expensive.
The film camera on the rig is covered when it's not being used. You can also see that there is a Nikon D200 digital SLR camera for taking still shots. The whole rig is controlled by a passenger with a remote control. The driver is surrounded by digital readouts, switches and cables. The car has a full steel roll cage and bucket seats with five point harnesses.Here's an Escalade that I did not see them using yet. The Ducati was used yesterday during some chase scenes. The chase involves a motorcycle so this is used to simulate the riders eye view as the bike leans into corners.
