Tesla cars have made quite an impression on the road, and even in space! The company has however, shown little interest to take to the sky. But that is no reason to put a cap on imagination! Designer Antonio Paglia has created this innovative concept called the Tesla Model H. This flying Tesla combines the tech of helicopters and drones to create a fresh concept. An exoskeleton formed like a ribbon covers the body of the helicopter, while the overall form takes inspiration from biomorphic as well as robotic shapes. Four mini rotors have been added to the ribbon-exoskeleton to make maneuvering easier, and the flight more stable.
Unveiled at the New York Auto Show, the all-electric Genesis Essentia Concept is a lovely head-turner. Good looks and performance of this concept could do wonders for the Genesis brand, and also for the parent company, Hyundai. Genesis sees the concept as the pinnacle of its awkward sounding “Athletic Elegance” design language; the phrase thankfully is overshadowed, or at least vindicated by the looks of the Essentia.
It is a concept, an idea that exists as a rendering; it could be many things, but it chose to be a keyboard. As a new concept keyboard, it looked at the wide choices of names it could have, wondering if simply being called keyboard would be enough. “No” said the booming voice of its creator, giving it the name F**ktron. This point forward, I’m just going to call it F-Tron. It is easier to write, and having to censor names just doesn’t sit right.
Tesla is pretty much the king in the world of all-electric cars that offer a killer performance. It’s only natural that the reigning monarch be challenged, and Porsche apparently intends to do that with the Mission E Concept.
Trion, and by association, the Trion Nemesis are both new names in the supercar game. And as things stand, they might as well be here for the long haul. I say that because I’m smitten with its good looks and excellent form. Top of the line model Nemesis N1-RR comes with a humongous 9.0 liter twin turbo V8 engine that has 2000 horses at its command. This motor will be mated to an 8-speed sequential transmission. Working together, the arrangement promises a zero to 60 mph time of 2.8 seconds, and a top speed of 290 mph.
The Ferrari F80 Supercar is an independent concept from designer Adriano Raeli. The sweet looking car with an aggressive stance speaks power, and the designer made sure that power did show up in the supercar. Raeli envisions power for the concept car coming from a hybrid drivetrain working with a KERS system and combustion engine.
Unveiled recently at the Villa d’Este Concours d’Elegance, MINI Superleggera Vision Concept showed off a sweet new look and refined style. While a concept for the moment, the Vision is a very likely contender for the production line. It is expected that the care will make a production debut in 2016.
Everyone has an idea of their ideal abode, the place dreams call home. This one here, is the dream house of Daniel Martin Ferrero of Martin Ferrero Architecture. With the skill available to him, Daniel was able to visualize his dream in a way that makes it more tangible, if not entirely real.
Lamborghini, it would be fair to assume, has zero interest in making a rat rod. Yet, as an independent design study, the Lamborghini Rat Rod looks magnificent. A concept by Pawel Wisniewski and Jans Slapins, the rendering imagines the appearance of a classic rat rod with modern influence of the Lamborghini design language.
Project F Concept is a study based on the Ferrari 458 Italia. Created by Ugur Sahin Design (previously), the concept focuses on organic lines inspired by nature. The concept is heavily dependent on the appearance, living on top of the already well curved Ferrari.
