The Blackbird is a fully adjustable vehicle rig built by visual effects company The Mill for car commercials and automotive video content. Its length can be increased by four feet and its width by 10 inches, its suspension and wheels can be altered, and CGI enables it to be re-skinned to look like just about any vehicle filmmakers might want to shoot. Its electric motor can even be programmed to mimic specific types of automobiles.
