In the year 2030, at a time in which city driving is done autonomously due to high urban density, driving for pleasure, adventures will be found outside the cities. To achieve this goal i created a concept car simple and sustainable. In urban use it is much common for sport an utility purpose a typical combi version of a vehicle with a higher clearance. In the future although only for adventure and PASSION off road vehicles will be used like in this case. Its typical combi version acomodates 5 passangers plus their luggage for a driving pleasure. Its Offroad capabilities offer great experience while climbing rocks on a Rubicon Trail in California. Getting on a peaks top with the whole family and picnic basket engages passengers senses, soul and emotion.
I took as an isnspiration a GL type from Mercedes and redesigned it to get a complete new look with design details on it. As we know over two decades its off road abilities and soul of the
department icon serving for military, medical and firts of all advaenturers, sportsman, hunters duties.
Rectangular shape of front glrill and the thinner headlights in full LED technology is in one carbonfibre piece. Front windowshield continues to an division line dividing fender also typical.
Over the recatngular finely extrudet fenders go on sides of tapred hood pair of outline lights. Behind the front wheel arch air intake breaks copy the line of handles. Aerodynamic lines that run from the hood over the roof to the rear of the vehicle and at the upper edge of the rear windshield ends with deflector that diverts the airflow along the rear. Both side doorstep and rear bumper are underlined by blue glowing stripes. Spare Wheel is replaced with the gasoline tank as a design element, but also a survival part.
While I am thinking of a full electric powertrain sure permanent all-wheel drive, which in future will be even powerfull enough to drive a huge vehicle like this one still the option of hybrid combustion engine will stay in game specially in situations when the battery runs low you`ll have a spare petrol power to put the electric power on.
This technical sculpture in rapid movement is muscular and highly athletic, but also elegant.
Lightweight bodyshell made of carbon fiber reinforced polymer is great not only for moderate power consumption, but also adds strenght without sacrificing weight. A variable bodyshell height facilitates a good approach angle and excellent clearance.
One piece carbon fiber Integrated seat and wheel design means also less parts-less weight-less assembly.
Wheels and tyres as an extra impotrant part of the concept are designed specially for it. Design of a 27 inch carbonfiber or alluminium rims underlines concept patency in terrain.
Screwed five ray rims tangentially continue to an adhesive pattern also similar color cause of aesthetics. Simmilar tread pattern as in agriculture is used to get great grip on gravel, mud
and Rubicon Trail rocks.
