October 25, 2010 § Leave a comment
Nine eye-catching concepts have been created by manufacturers’ studios for the Los Angeles Auto Show Design Challenge, and these will be judged at the Show next month. The brief for this year’s Challenge was to create a 1000lbs fuel-efficient car of the future, and contestants are the Smart Weight Watch (pictured); the luxurious 2+2 Cadillac Aera; the aggressively streamlined Honda Air; the utterly bizarre Maybach DRS rickshaw; the Mazda MX-0, a stripped-down MX-5; the solar-powered Mercedes-Benz Biome, which communes with trees; the organic-material Nissan iV; the ‘podular’ bioplastic Toyota Mori; and the carbonfibre, compressed-air Volvo Air Motion Canyon Carver.
