ELK Electric Concept Car – A Design Proposal for Mercedes Benz

Antonio Paglia, an Italian automotive designer, has design a concept car as proposal for Mercedes Benz. ELK is an electric concept car with compact body and futuristic design, it looks like there are no passengers’ windows, perhaps they are replaced by digital displays.

The goal of this my project was to create a fun car with zero impact. It is based on a famous auto maker company, a Mercedes Benz concept car that is aggressive but at the same time it has an ecological heart. The dimensions are similar to the Alfa Romeo 4c, a small sportscar. The sinuous forms are represented by the aerodynamics and the familiar design of the last concept Mercedes cars. The body is constructed out of carbon fiber that protrudes from the front, the rear, and from the side appendages. The car has a cockpit with windows in augmented reality to provide as much information to the pilot or driver. The three-pointed star, the redesigned rear, containing the technological and clean heart of the car. Finally the lights give a character action aggression and iconic style to the car at night.

Aero Gran Turismo Concept Car is a Tribute to The History of Aero Cars

Due to recent concepts from major automotive manufacturers for Gran Turismo video game, Michal Jelinek made an attempt to design his own version of a virtual racing car under the brand AERO. Aero was a Czechoslovak automobile, manufactured between 1929-1947. It was a well-known aircraft and car body company in Praha-Vysocany, but now, the company only produces aircrafts.

Aero Vision Gran Turismo is a tribute to the history of Aero cars, it features cocoon shaped cockpit where the body structure plays the role as the main frame, an exoskeleton while serving as a set of wings and spoilers to provide optimum ground effect and aerodynamics. The electric powertrain is fully distributed directly to all 4 wheels.

Tulip Concept EV Features Modular Design to Suit Your Needs

Ognyan Bozhilov has submitted his latest personal vehicle design to Tuvie. It’s an electric personal vehicle for modern city with modular design to suit your mobility needs. You can read details explanation below.

The Tulip is not yet another electric vehicle. The way I see it’s a striving to change the idea of one’s personal mobility. I don’t think it’s enough to cope with the emissions from conventional vehicles. We have to address also the industry that is creating them and the consumer mind of modern people fueling this industry.

This is why I want to design not only a new type of vehicle, but a whole new model for the personal transportation. An object that evolves with you, something that you form an emotional connection with. Look at it as your home. You can’t buy home. You can buy a house and use it as a base to build upon. Model it and arrange it according to your taste and needs until gradually over time it becomes your home. I want to achieve this effect with a vehicle.

Bugatti Atlantean Racing Yacht Pays Hommage to The Bugatti Type 57

The Bugatti Atlantean Racing Yacht is a concept that pays homage to the classic automobile – The Type 57. Incorporating features that gave the vehicle an iconic stance in the automotive industry, its form blends streamline design from the 1930’s with modernized aerodynamics.

The design aesthetic was focused on a low center of gravity, which in turn gave it a better a racing appearance. The hull and its two side supports, are all submerged, creating a large footprint and aids in stabilizing the yacht as well as the substantial length of the craft which accommodates for its balance.

Echoes of a Nearby Future : Formula 1 Concept Car by Andries van Overbeeke

We just received a conceptual Formula 1 car from Andries van Overbeeke. It’s a realistic vision of F1 concept car that can be implemented in 2017, following new rules revolution talks. You can read his explanations below.

I made a realistic future Formula 1 concept that could be implemented in 2017, when there is a big rule change. The intention of these rules is to make the cars look more aggressive and attractive. A lot of prominent Formula 1 guys have been talking about wider cars and bigger rear wheels, however there have been no realistic concepts that explore the aesthetics of these rule changes. I decided to make some nice crisp 4K images.

Looks are very important in Formula 1, but the quality of racing often is determined by the laws of physics. The problem here is that F1 cars are very dependent on aerodynamics for their speed: a leading car disturbs the airflow for the car following close behind, causing ‘dirty air’, and makes it difficult to have close racing. Thinking about the implications of your design on physics and the racing is very important.

The intention here is to make the cars less sensitive to the negative effects of dirty air, and shift more towards mechanical grip.

Krossblade SkyProwler VTOL Transformer Drone Can Be Easily Reconfigured to Suit Your Need

Coming from the same company that designed a conceptual VTOL airplane called SkyCruiser, it’s exciting to see they have come up with smaller version of that concept, SkyProwler. It’s a high performance VTOL Transformer Drone that takes off just like a chopper and when it picks up speed with its high powered thrusters, it transforms into cruise flight with its high speed wings. It is equipped with multirotor take-off mechanism that folds away in-flight to give SkyProwler optimum aerodynamics and better range compared to pure copters or airplanes.

For your missions, there are times when you need maximum hover time with tight turns, it doesn’t matter, because you can simply re-configure SkyProwler without tools. You can take the wings off, change its tail, or create wingless SkyProwler with Hornet configuration, this is a cool thing you can do that you probably can’t find with other drones.

Arya Boat by Marco Schembri

Arya boat is a conceptual luxury yacht tender designed with special attention to its aerodynamics. Most often than not, when designing a boat, we underestimate the importance of the impact of both water and air. In this concept boat design, the goal here is to minimize the impact at the optimum level while at the same time the boat features elegant lines and visually attractive appearance. The drawing was developed using CAD software Rhino and rendered using Vray on 3DStudio Max, unfortunately there’s no high level of details yet, hopefully when the designer has made the newer and more detail version, we can update this article. At this design phase, the orientation of this project is to pay attention to the performance of the lines and orientation of the volumes.

3D Printed Fractal LED Generator by Margot Krasojević

The light’s ceramic 3d printed shell is modeled using an ever decreasing repeated pattern, these fractal dimensions reserve self-similarity across scale, where at any magnification there is a smaller piece of the object only being restricted through it’s entire form. When air passes over it the light freely rotates picking up speed as a result of it’s weight,

Balance and pattern repetition. The movement rotates a motor which creates a current using a joule thief circuit to light up a cluster of LED’S. The light only uses wind power to generate this electricity, a capacitor allows the light to store up energy when there is no wind power to turn it. There are no batteries in the circuit only the electronics circuit shown below. The ceramic shell was designed using simulation software to test the aerodynamics and fluid dynamics of the form, materials and densities.
