Bend – Unmanned Ground Vehicle for Cross Country

The Bend Unmanned Cross-country vehicle by industrial designer Maya Prokhorova looks remarkable for quite a few reasons. Its tires are made from scrap metal and are modeled in a manner that feels almost like a combination of Michelin’s 3D printed tires and NASA’s chainlink tires. The hollow metallic construction makes the wheel less susceptible to puncturing, while the organic design makes it look rather unique. Made from scrap metal, the wheels are easy to replace and repair.The next interesting thing is its form. Designed as a massive magnetic ball-socket joint, the Bend can literally twist and contort itself to work around any sort of terrain. Designed for applications in construction, research, and agriculture, the Bend works unmanned, and can be modified to suit its application. It runs on a battery that may need replacing from time to time. The designer proposes a drone-based battery replacement system.

Lamborghini Terzo Millennio Concept

Developed in partnership with MIT, the Lamborghini Terzo Millennio Concept is the Raging Bull’s idea of a supercar for the “third millennium.” Unhappy with current battery technology, Lamborghini decided to instead base the all-electric car on supercapacitors that deliver high peak power and kinetic energy regeneration without the aging problems that affect standard cells. They’re paired with a series of four electric motors integrated into each wheel, ensuring the car remains four-wheel drive. The body structure is perhaps even more advanced, created from carbon fiber materials that double as an accumulator for energy storage and are self-healing, meaning that the car can repair small cracks and substructure damage itself. As you might imagine, it will be some time before we see anything like this on the open road.

BMW Unveils Incredible M8 GTE Le Mans

The currently ongoing 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show has unveiled yet another masterpiece from BMW – this time flexing the new M8 GTE, the racing variation of the production vehicle – and the company’s first Le Mans car since 2011. The vehicle is slated to debut next January in Daytona 24 hours before racing at the World Endurance Championship and IMSA campaigns in 2018. Set to replace the M6 GTLM and Z4 GTE, the incredible BMW M8 GTE will also mark the company’s return to the iconic 24 hour race from Le Mans. It will pack an impressive 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, but due to racing regulations it will limited to no more than 500 hp, sent to the wheels via a six-speed sequential gearbox. The intensive use of carbon-fiber for its bodywork helped keep its weight down to 2,700 pounds (1,225kg), which probably means this racer is capable of delivering some awesome thrills. The production version of the M8 wasn’t even close to its completion when the M8 GTE went into development, which is why computer simulations were crucial to the design of the traction control system and the vehicle’s final form.

Smart Vision EQ All-Electric Concept Car For Self-Driving

The Smart vision EQ fortwo is highly flexible, efficient form of transportation that provides a new perspective on individualized, urban mobility and local public transport. The fully-autonomous, electric vehicle dispenses with the traditional steering wheel and pedals.

The Smart vision EQ fortwo is summoned using a mobile device and exterior surface displays make it easy for one to recognize their individualized car. This particular concept car has a particularly interesting “black panel grille” at its front and side projection surfaces, that aid in communication between car and passenger. It serves to both add a personal touch, and to communicate with other road users (e.g. information for pedestrians crossing the road). The doors of the concept car are coated with a film that can be activated as required. If the car is unoccupied, information about local events, the weather, news or the time can be displayed.

How Tesla Model S Might Look Like

As you know Tesla decided that their model S would no longer contain a discernible radiator grill. There are many people who don’t understand this design solution. And one of them is a designer Steel Drake who redesigned the Model S. The new concept, called the Model SD, features a rather different looking front detail. Between the two headlights, around a tiny triangular radiator grill lies the car’s new mouth. Taking inspiration from grill designs and marrying it with illumination, the car’s front features an interactive inverted-mustache panel of lights that give the car its face-like quality again while also bringing something innovative. The detail lights up on ignition, almost looking like an air-flow pattern. It even changes color, based on your driving mode.

Lazareth Wazuma V8F Matte Edition

The Lazareth “Wazuma V8F Matte Edition” takes a Ferrari engine and pairs it with a BMW “M3” sequential gearbox, packing its ferocity in a matte black quad shell. Created by Dominic Lazareth, the French car and motorcycle tuner known for blurring the genres of vehicles and producing some of the most outrageous customs in Europe. The Lazareth “Wazuma V8F Matte Edition’s’ Ferrari 3.0 liter V8 engine is now modified with two Yamaha “R1” injection ramps, allowing its rider to over-rev the engine. This produces a frightening 250 hp for a total weight of 500 kg: quite frankly, terrifying. With twin wheels closely situated at the rear, and two spread wide at the front, the vehicles unique form and performance capabilites lend themselves to a superhero’s car collection – but which warrior would be brave enough to ride it? The control of the BMW “M3” gearbox has been completely revised by Lazareth, allowing the rider to make gear shifts by hand using two buttons on the handlebars. In an effort to contain its raw power, brembo brake calipers are combined with four 324 mm discs, while four pfp racing horizontal shock absorbers soak up choppy rides. the “Matte edition’s” momo rims are extended at the rear to accomodate it’s ultra-wide “315/30 ZR18” tires, while the front sits on a slightly-narrower pair of “285/30 ZR18’s”.
