Design Concept of the Day #1: Subaru Horizon
November 3, 2011 § Leave a comment
The theme for this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show Design Challenge is “Hollywood’s Hottest Movie Car.” Subaru’s entry is sci-fi. In a time 200 years after the rotation of the Earth has stopped, with no sunlight on the Nightsphere and energy sources about to dwindle, a team has to set out to the Daysphere to find a rare crystallized mineral to power its generators… it’s a journey from which no-one has returned, due to strong electromagnetic waves from the sun, scorching heat, chemical imbalances and raging storms on the Daysphere. This is the vehicle in which Alcyone, the driver, Maia the navigator and Pleiades the magical cat (oh yes) set out on their task… How’s that for a movie treatment, Hollywood?
