An interesting 'five-body' approach. Someone is following Luigi Colani.

I of course immediately wonder — What would a four-passenger version with ingress-egress solved look like. An updated Volkhart-Saggita.



The only explanation I can think of for the wheel/tire is glossy rubber with a matte finish tread.

I remember some trucks with bodies designed by him. Not so unpractical at all, even though their breakthrough features would either be too expensive to fit in a serial production or simply rejected by the truck market which tended to be more conservative.

Single-seater layouts with a mid-mounted cockpit looks cool. Would be interesting to say the least to drive one of those Porsches on a mountain road...

Admittedly a regular guilty pleasure, reviewing supercar/hypercar manufacturers' using the viral magnet maven - Supercar Blondie.
Many have used her very popular social media outlets to introduce their latest & wildest concepts. Lambo's single-seat V12 Vision GT of aerodynamics?! ...actually it's inspired by PlayStation Gran Turismo videogaming championships.
