Home / Automotive / News / Leila Lerm – 1968 Pontiac Firebird – Behind The Scenes


After the recent release of our latest video, Autopilot, where Mike, Chris and Roscoe take a trip out to a small town called Cullinan in South Africa to meet the lovely Leila Lerm, we thought you might like to tag along this time too to see what we get up as we actually put a shoot together.

From the planning process in SXdrv HQ, to the pre-shoot shopping for essentials (like food, energy drinks and a random 9-volt battery) to the drive out to Zwartkops Raceway where the shoot eventually happens, you'll get to see how an official SXdrv shoot comes together.

As you'll notice, no matter how hard you prepare for a shoot day, there's usually something that doesn't go according to plan but, although there were some complications along the way, we pulled together and managed to produce Leila's amazing shoot.

At the end of the video below, you'll also get to check out the epic prank that Roscoe planned out for Mike to teach him a valuable lesson on backing up your footage...

We really hope you enjoy this video and be sure to check out Autopilot and let us know your thoughts in the comments below and keep your eyes peeled for our next epic adventure!
