FIBT World Cup BMW M2 Bobsled

BMW has announced that U.S. Med's Bobsled Team will participate at FIBT World Cup using BMW M2 2-Man Bobsled. It's been designed and developed in collaboration with USA Bobsled & Skeleton Federation (USBSF), BMW managed to apply world-class design with high-tech engineering to redesign two-man sled with hope of helping team USA to get its first Olympic gold medal. The head coach of U.S. men's bobsled has said that the testing result looked promising, however, the true speed is determined in the competition.

BMW has utilized intelligent lightweight materials with optimized aerodynamics design for this new sled. The weight distribution is configured to optimize the balance of the regulation's mandated sled weight. The result is BMW M2 2-Man Bobsled with lighter body shell and low, centralized center of gravity for faster performance.

Bugatti Type Zero Concept

Bugatti Type Zero is a conceptual project aims to design and develop supercar at the same level of mechanical attraction to Ferrari with its electrical propulsion. This single-seater futuristic hypercar has been designed to be more superior that other supercars, inspired by the iconic Type 35, it creates a new kind vehicle for drivers just like in the 30's.

Driver seat is located right in the center of everything in order to feel the performance of all electrical mechanisms around him, feel the rotation of engine, vibration of the KERS, and the heat of lithium battery. You can find more details from images below.

Designers : Devauze Marc, Anton Lawrence Victor, Emeric Baubant, Yaniss Tebaibi, and Geoffrey Texier

eCycle Dynamic Frame Electric Bike

eCycle electric bike is a conceptual project aims to design modern e-bike that is lightweight, flexible, easy to build with dynamic frame design. Most our e-bikes today are based on traditional bicycle design converted into electric by adding some extra elements and wires. These are the same 100+ year old design converted to electric which later becomes overpriced bike.

This concept utilizes Hydroformed aluminum frame for the main structure while the battery pack is placed in stylized "fuel tank" inspired by retro motorcycles. Just in case you want to ride this e-bike just like a normal one, you can simply remove the battery, thus eliminating extra battery weight from the bike.

Urban Pod

The Urban Pod has all the bells and whistles you'd expect from such a futuristic-looking design- radar for collision warning/parking, tire pressure sensors, fingerprint access, photovoltaic recharging top, head-up display… the list goes on. But what we can't get over is that this bioplastic hybrid is just so cute! It's inner-city travel style at its best.

Ferrari Flusso Supercar Concept

Ferrari Flusso was a project created for Ferrari World design challenge in 2011 in ISD DSK India. The goal is to design a supercar where each user has the ability to create its own supercar model, one of a kind as one wishes. Buyers can choose to purchase Ferrari Flusso at zero stage which means, depending on their driving skills, the style of aerodynamic flow will not be the same. The result would be a unique car, one and only.
