McLaren P1, Veyron, Agera R, Lamborghini Sesto Elmento Spotted on Set of NFS Movie

Everybody knows that when it comes to car chasing action, your PS3 or Xbox is just as much a source of entertainment as the cinema is. In fact, a good video game can bring in more money than a summer blockbuster but he Need for Speed franchise is already so big that they can branch out from games to movies, challenging the Fast and Furious establishment with their own big-budget production.

Filming has started in Mendocino County, situated North of San Francisco. Two spy photos originating from the Mendocino County Film Office have found their way onto the internet and are creating quite the stir.

They show exotics like the new McLaren P1, Koenigsegg Agera R, the GTA Spano and even the mighty Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. In reality, most of them are likely cheap mockups of the real million-dollar toys, there to fool the eye into thinking they're the real deal. The photo we've discovered of the P1 shows it's clearly not the real deal, which is very disappointing, kind of like seeing Madonna put on her makeup before a concert.

There's also a mockup of the ultra-rare Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, of which only 22 will be built, but which hasn't even entered production yet.

We've also discovered a closeup photo of the yellow GTA Spano, which seems to be the real deal. Amusingly, this car has never been available in any NFS games, but for its movie debut, it decided to play a "Mendocino County Sheriff". It's even been decked out with police lights.

The idea of having fake supercars chasing each other with fame exhaust gasses added by the special effects guys added to make it look like they are going faster than they really are sounds juvenile. But maybe the movie will be better than we think, since Electronic Arts has all the visual effects experience in the world.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
