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.

Racer Fourteen – Newest Supercar Concept by Ahmed Ghamloush

Today we want to show you a sleek Racer Fourteen by designer Ahmed Ghamloush. This stretched out supercar looks like the offspring of a Lotus 2 Eleven and a BAC Mono. Like the Lotus, it’s got a predominantly flat hood, full fender body coverings and exaggerated wheel arches. Like the Mono, however, it sports a central, open-air seat for one driver tucked neatly in front of a dramatic overhead scoop. Despite being a concept, its form is almost more believable than the previously mentioned supercars. According to the designer, its realism is a result of soft fluid-like surfacing interrupted only by scoops, antennas, and venting. In contrast with its bold curves and body shape, details like LED headlights/taillights and air intakes are minimalist touches that keep focus on the overall form. And if you were impressed by this concept car you should definitely check 2040 Manifesto and Ferrari Celeritas.

Ultramodern Formula-E Racer

This ultramodern tribute to Le Mans is a low-slung GT with a design language reminiscent of famous names like Pininfarina Modulo, Cadillac Cyclone and the Norman Timbs Special. Like the classics, you can see the same fluid curves and dramatic shaping from tip to tail with emphasis on the fenders and roofline. It also takes inspiration from sci-fi fantasy and robotics, resulting in the use of clean surfaces, layered design and glossy areas in contrast with carbon fiber of the semi-exposed chassis. It also sports an innovative charging system under the hood that aims to revolutionize Formula-E racing. While current racing platforms are restricted by the need for long recharging, the ELYTRON is equipped with induction charging that keeps it running on the electrified track. Designer Fabio Ferrante: “That’s the importance of advanced design. Not just shapes but strong concepts that bring to the table a new recipe, using the ingredients that technology gives to us… with just a pinch of creative thinking.” And don’t forget our list of the most expensive car of the world.

What is the Future of Carsharing? Concept of Autonomous Carsharing System

The Mobuno concept merges the best features of current transportation alternatives into one autonomous, carsharing system. A Mobuno unit can be instantly booked as easy as an Uber. Similarly, users can view the status, location and availability of vehicles directly on their smartphone. Each Mobuno unit can carry groups numbering up to 4 passengers. Better yet, larger groups can book multiple Mobunos at once. They will arrive and travel in tandem to accommodate any number of passengers. Additionally, those who don’t mind sharing the ride can switch to a sharing mode and the Mobuno autonomous vehicle will pick up passengers traveling in the same direction for a discounted rate.

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.

American Muscle Car – Pontiac Firebird TT Black Edition Concept

The firebird of Slavic folklore was a magical glowing fowl that was able to see the future. The Pontiac Firebird was an American automobile that clearly didn’t share its namesake’s prescient superpower – otherwise it would have forseen and thwarted its own demise in 2002. Still, some dream it will one day rise from the ashes. An artist Kasim Tlibekov has given us a look at what the Firebird could be with this low-slung, Trans Am-style concept. A resto-mod, old-meets-new take makes it immediately recognizable as a Firebird, with concealed headlamps and slotted brake lights. The slotted rear window cover is pure Firebird, and a front splitter and massive rear wing would make it at home on a Trans Am race grid.

Jaguar Future-Type Concept: Jaguar’s Vision for the Year 2040

The Jaguar Future-Type has been revealed at an event in London appropriately titled Tech Fest, it was created to showcase the technology the company’s currently beavering away on. It’s Jaguar’s idea of how the concept of car ownership could evolve by the year 2040. The Future-Type is designed with the intention of being summoned on demand. It’s capable of fully autonomous driving, although occupants will still be able to take the wheel themselves – because, in Jaguar’s words, ‘you may still want to enjoy the thrill of driving yourself.’ Its tandem-esque 2+1 seating layout allows a slimline shape, the better for parking and navigating crowded urban streets. This being an autonomous concept, the interior’s configured for face-to-face seating.

Luxury And Extraordinary Bugatti Atlantic

Bugatti has always been a name synonymous with speed, luxury, exclusivity, an extraordinary design and a great passion for automobiles. Palestinian designer Arthur B. Nustas is proposing a different take on one of Bugatti’s most legendary designs, the Type 57 Atlantic, an iconic car that was produced in just four units, and only three of them have survived to this day. Nustas’ modern take on the Bugatti Atlantic seems to be a marvelous blend between the stylish lines and design cues of the Atlantic and modern elements from the new Chiron. This is merely a design study, although a very beautiful one. The very long hood reminds us of the 1930’s fast boasts and makes us think about the massive power plant that could possibly fit beneath. This might prove to be an awesome evolution of the Chiron in the years to come, if it’s ever considered. So, if you like luxury cars then you should definitely check our list of top 10 most expensive cars.

Mono Humster Concept Car by Kevin Boulton

The Mono Humster concept car was designed by Kevin Boulton for the Humster 3D Car Design and Rendering Competition, 2016. The construction is perfect for Formula 1 but the front end of the car is much wider than traditional Formula 1 cars. It looks like if the engine is actually in the front of the rather than behind the diver, as is the case in most F1 automobiles. The car aesthetic definitely looks like a functional hybrid, creating a bridge between hypercars and formula race cars. And of course, this is a perfect 3D. Though this is just a concept car if it’s created it could be one of the most expensive car ever.

Tesla T1 Concept For 24 Hours of Le Mans

Developed for the Michelin Design Challenge 2017, the goal consisted in create a ready to race, winning machine for the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Tesla T1 is the creation of a team of designers, that imagined a 2030 Tesla racing car good enough for the Le Mans 24 Hour race. The concept proposal was build up around the idea of using an unlimited power resource as the wind. From this point, everything took up shape starting from the four wheels: they had to serve as energy recovery systems taking advantage of Le Mans average speeds per lap and without depending only in braking regeneration as nowadays. The T1 has four air turbines integrated in the wheels, which are able to redirect the air through specific points crucial in the design: a fifth wind turbine in the body and the rear diffuser. And don’t forget to check our post about the most expensive cars.

Futuristic Robo-Car From Toyota Which Don’t Need a Driver

Toyota has presented its vision of the future at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, with a “warm and friendly” user experience the defining aim of the project. Designed from the inside, out the Concept-i aims to be warm, welcoming, and fun creating an “immersive and energetic” experience for users with an advanced artificial intelligence system at its core to anticipate users needs and even provide inspiration. Over time the AI system will build a relationship with the driver that is more human than electronic, while also commanding the Concept-i’s autonomous systems in concert with driver responsiveness to create a seamless safety net of support. Designed at Toyota’s Calty Design Reseach studio in California, the Concept-i’s AI system has been dubbed Yui, and offers a visual representation intended to cross cultural boundaries, anchored in the centre of the dash. Instead of a total reliance on screens to deliver information, the Concept-i provides visual communications via an advanced head-up display, footwell lighting which changes depending from purple in automated mode to green when manual control is selected, and projectors mounted in the rear of the car to project blind-spot warnings. On the Concept-i’s doors, Yui can appear to greet approaching passengers, while the rear of the vehicle can display more than the usual stop and turn signals, providing messages that can worn about potential hazards. Up front information about manual or automated control can also be displayed, and to make the it more friendly and approachable the Concept-i can wink and blink its headlights, before casting its pivoting doors skyward to allow passengers in.

The Mercedes-Benz Generation EQ Concept

Mercedes-Benz is trying to play with your emotions with its new electric vehicle concept, debuted at the Paris Motor Show. The “Generation EQ” it unveiled is a sporty SUV design, which is reminiscent of the Tesla Model X in its lines and overall look. The concept car sits atop a 70-kWh battery pack and its two electric motors produce up to 402 hp of power and 516 lb-ft of torque, good enough for hit 62 mph from a dead stop in less than five seconds. Even with that much performance potential from hosting an electric motor on each axle, Benz says the car is capable of eking out around 311 of range from a single full charge.”Generation EQ is hot and cool,” Daimler design boss Gorden Wagener claimed. Inside, the Generation EQ takes full advantage of the HERE digital mapping Daimler owns (along with Audi and BMW), to push the production car across the line from driver assistance systems to fully piloted driving. Besides being detailed enough to know the exact radii of every turnpike, intersection and bend it might ever face, the mapping also lets Benz put a new 3D digital interface onto the car’s 24-inch TFT high-definition display screen. The system highlights the buildings that are helpful to navigation, but fades the rest to avoid confusion, while the Generation EQ also takes on board car-to-X data from other cars, buildings and infrastructure to keep itself out of trouble “Its fascination lies in a reinterpretation of our design philosophy of sensual purity, the aim being to create an avant-garde, contemporary and distinctive electro-look.” The first EQ production vehicle will be a road-ready version of the Paris concept car. Mercedes-Benz insiders insist the car’s running gear is far closer to production-ready than is typical for one of their concept cars, right down to its chassis layout, which combines steel, aluminum, and carbon-fiber. Every major piece of the Generation EQ’s production engineering will be scalable, allowing Daimler to effectively deliver CLA-sized cars and a silent, parallel S-Class off the same engineering scheme.

Futuristic Renault Trezor Concept

take a look at Renault newest electric concept, the Trezor. Fresh off of an unveiling at the Paris Motor show, the car has been generating a lot of chatter among the auto-press. The general consensus is that it’s a more ‘mature’ vehicle, one befitting from the marque’s recent streamlining of their primary product line under the command of designer Van den Acker. The fully electric car boasts a 260kW battery that puts out 360 horses and 282 pound feet of torque, allowing it to speed from 0 to 62 miles per hour in under four seconds. In addition to the all that oomph under the hood, the overall design of the thing is almost otherworldly. It is 15 feet long, 6 feet wide, only 3 feet tall, and instead of doors the entire top half of the coupe lifts up for occupants to get in and out.

Lazareth Wazuma GT

Some time ago we’ve already shown you a quad bike created by French bike builder Lazareth. Today we want to show you not quite a motorcycle yet not exactly a car either – Lazareth Wazuma GT. While it has four wheels, the back two are so close together they are functionally just one giant wheel. Sitting low to the ground and featuring shallow seats, both passenger and driver can really feel all of the 385 horsepower produced by the V8 Supercharged Jaguar 4.0 engine. With a 2,000 pound curb weight and 387 pound-feet of torque, this 5-speed automatic has a nearly unmatched power to weight ratio, making acceleration feel totally unique.

Long-Awaited Toyota ‘Supra’

Toyota has been working on the model since 2015, but has now begun to move development further forward with the fastback coupé set to arrive in 2018. The next-generation ‘Supra’ will come as the long-awaited successor to the Japanese manufacturers emblematic coupé, which was discontinued in 2002. The new sports car is expected to be considerably more expensive than the popular ‘GT86’, reflecting what is likely to include a more complex powertrain and high-tech construction. The ‘Supra’s’ form will draw its influence from the ‘FT-1 concept’s’ design language incorporating curved, expressive body forms shaped by the wind; inlets, air ducts, and vent features help reinforce its aggressive track stance with airflow management and highly aerodynamic elements.

Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing Reveal AM-RB 001 Hypercar

This is not just another digital concept for an upcoming Gran Turismo game. The AM-RB 001 is the product of a collaboration between Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing – Aston Martin intends to deliver the first examples of the car in 2018, with up to 150 examples being produced including 25 track-only versions.s This lightweight, mid-engined two-seater is powered by a new high-revving naturally aspirated V12. The Aston Martin AM-RB 001 has been billed as the world’s fastest road car with potentially F1-rivalling levels of performance. Its price has not been announced but it has all chances to become one of the most expensive cars. The car is styled by Aston Martin’s chief creative officer Marek Reichman. But having employed one of the most famous Formula One designers Aston Martin claims its car “boasts truly radical aerodynamics for unprecedented levels of downforce in a road-legal car”.

Audi Truck Project

Two designers created a project of truck concept for Audi. The goal of the project, called Truck For Audi, was to create a concept for a self-driving electric truck for the German automobile manufacturer. In this case, since the idea itself breaks new ground in the transportation world, it only made sense that designers Artem Smirnov and Vladimir Panchenko would practically reinvent the way we view these trucks. What’s left for us is quite the imaginative piece of vehicle conceptualization, featuring elongated headlights and tail lights along with design lines smoother than Miles Davis. And let’s not forget that cockpit inspired cabin. Whatever the case, if these do make it on the road eventually, they’re sure to draw significant attention from surrounding drivers.

Rolls-Royce Concept of Futuristic Driverless Luxury Vehicle

Car brand Rolls-Royce has designed its first ever concept car, billed as a vision for a future of driverless luxury vehicles with a built-in “red carpet” and lighting system that announces its arrival to bystanders. Called the Rolls-Royce Vision Next 100, the design aims to “anticipate the mobility demands of the luxury customer of the future”. Unveiled at London’s Roundhouse venue, the concept car includes a roof that glides open with a hinged design based on a clamshell. This would allow riders to step into the interior without having to bend over. The roof and door would then close automatically. Many of the signature forms of a Rolls-Royce have been updated in the design for the body of the car. The brand’s classic Pantheon grille has been kept and reimagined as a smaller but more prominent frontage for the vehicle. The designers imagined a Rolls-Royce that could be designed around less mechanical hardware, replacing the majority of the engine space with a luggage compartment. This also allowed them to make the car narrower, and create a sport-style rear and curved cabin roof, made from black glass. The wheels are housed in individual cases, with exposed arms and struts that connect to the chassis and also support the hull-shaped body at the front. “The 28-inch tall but narrow wheels upon which the car glides are each hand-built from 65 individual pieces of aluminium, and enclosed to deliver the impression of a futuristic catamaran,” said Rolls-Royce. “From whatever angle the Rolls-Royce Vision Next 100 is viewed, it seems to float, whether at rest or in motion. This lightness is achieved through the paring back of this vehicle to the essence of a Rolls-Royce by the design team, who were freed from their current constraints by the new propulsion and coach-build technologies now available to them.” The brand’s signature radiator mascot – a figure of a woman leaning into the wind with fabric blowing around her – has been recreated in crystal and is illuminated from inside. This light spreads across the car as it arrives at its destination, and a step appears from the side of the car once the roof has opened. A red light is then projected to create a red-carpet style arrival. “The Grand Arrival gesture of the Rolls-Royce Vision Next 100 creates a stage for our important passengers as they arrive at their ultimate destination,” said Giles Taylor, director of design at Rolls-Royce. “It is an expression of our intrinsic understanding of the possibilities for a true luxury brand and the desires of its customers.” Rolls-Royce said it wanted to recreate the experience of grand horse-drawn carriages, with the coachman replaced by an artificial-intelligence system. The company has named this “virtual assistant” Eleanor, and said that it could offer owners advice on how to prepare for meetings and important events as well as driving the car. It could also help select movies and music for the car’s entertainment system. Inside, the car has no driving area. Instead, the interior resembles a lounge, with wooden panelling, a deep-pile carpet and a wool-and-silk-upholstered sofa facing a full-width OLED screen that functions as an entertainment and work station. All of the features could be customised for each owner, using interactive design tools that would allow them to give their input before the car is built. Rolls-Royce imagines the car would be powered by a zero-emission drivetrain and use “advanced suspension” to create the sensation of the car skimming the surface of the road like a “magic carpet”.
