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.

McLaren P1 GTR Racing Car : From Design Concept to Track

From design concept to track, McLaren P1 GTR will have its debut at the 85th International Geneva Motor Show. This cool racing car will be available in limited production with some minor modifications to the concept presented just 6 months ago. This design is actually homage to the iconic yellow and green McLaren F1 GTR which claimed its place as one of 5 F1 GTRs that dominated the 24 Hours of Le Mans in historic debut by McLaren 20 years ago.

This racing car has gone through extensive and intense testing schedule across the world, therefore, you can see some enhancements from original design in order to optimize aerodynamic performance and cooling. The lightweight windscreen measures just 3.2mm thick while the side windows feature motorsport-specification polycarbonate with a sliding ticket window on the driver’s side. The front track has been designed to be 80mm wider than road-going McrLaren P1, using aggressively profiled front splitter, the car sits 50mm lower to the ground on the center-locking 19-inch alloy wheels shod with Pirelli slick tires.

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.

GIUSEPPE : The Next-Generation F1 Machine Concept For 2025

We just got design submission from Jaemin Park, GIUSEPPE concept racing car is the next-generation F1 machine for 2025. You can read the designer explanation about this concept car here:

This is the next-generation F1 machine design for the 2025 Mercedes AMG Petronas team. F1 racing is a sport in which the driver runs the car very fast up to 300 km/hour, I thought that machine’s stable posture is important during driving. Two independent flexible bodies are applied to this machine, instead of the front wing, and downforce is produced from the inside of the front wheel. It maximizes aerodynamics more than the existing F1 machine and has a wide overall width. Therefore, this machine has two independent front bodies which minimizes air resistance, by narrowing the width for extreme speed during high-speed driving, and maintains a stable position, by widening it again in a normal course.

Laminar 3 Concept Car by Daniel Fitzgerald

The Laminar 3 is the third iteration of a concept car that features adjustable aerodynamics to best suit the driving conditions. Providing better down-force when cornering, and better aerodynamic efficiency for freeway driving. Following feedback regarding the lack of a rear aerodynamic profile with Laminar 2 this new concept aims to address this through the incorporation of adjustable tapering rear end. Identical to the front wings characteristics the rear tapering end has a Low Drag profile that can when required dynamically rotate its angle of attack to provide down-force to the rear of a car.
