suggestions for aggressive, adrenaline charged font
0

hi -- anything come to mind for a font that could work for Racing cars? i have been searching for days, nothing really popping out. the main letter is "S" so something with a curvy quality but bad a**! thanks in advance for any suggestions! :)

Maiola comes to mind: http://www.type-together.com/Maiola

Agressive, stressed, somehow and somewhat unquiet, unpeaceful,... as if saying "Get out of my way!" Not bad for a racing car! Still not convinced? Then look at the italic capitals K, R , X,....!

Still not sold? Then wait for suggestions from the experts!

I'm personally not feeling it in Maiola, but it does give me the idea of suggesting this:

Or what about this?

Although you'd want the Bold.

Or: http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/fw-alias/klute/

But I'm sure better suggestions are on their way.

@adenson: Is this personal, professional, or academic work?

I was actually half joking! Hilarious. Please post your work if you manage to pull off using Slipstream. I’d love to see it in action. If I’m not mistaken, it is mandatory that every city in the world have at least one courier service which uses this typeface ;)

The logos of some car companies known for speed don't necessarily reflect that in their font choices:

And most real race cars are covered with sponsor logos:

I know this info isn't particularly helpful to you, but just thought I'd point it out.

A few weeks ago I took my nephew to a monster truck show and many of those actually had more dramatic (but mostly juvenile) use of graphics and fonts.
