We just got design submission from Fulop Gellert, it’s a concept car called Toby. Yes, the name reminds us to “A Special Story about Toby”, you can read the reason behind this cute name from the designer’s own words below.
The concept cars name is Toby. It might seem a persons name and it is, but I also decided to give it to my concept. This is because I believe it has a personality, not because of it’s deign features, but because of how it became to be.
My inspiration for this concept started from a conversation I had with a friend, who said “why don’t you build a car company yourself ?”. Of course he didn’t know much about running a company of any size, nevertheless I started thinking, how could I start a car company in my own little town?. My town is famous for making good violins and other musical instruments. So I started thinking, using the tools, the craftsmanship, and the experience of our local violin makers, what kind of car I could make. This was how Toby concept car born. However, simply making a car using wood panels and carbon fiber was nothing new. I wanted to show people how ideas were born and how a simple thought can become a story or a dream, which may or may not become reality. To do this, I thought I made a video, a story of how Toby was born.
