Default Design Challenge: Italian Exotic Lightweight Racer

And so begins the first contest of the New Year, and we've got some pretty great topics to choose from thanks to dsgnr:

1. GM's Electrical Savior - "I hope we can all agree on the Chevy Volt not being the messian car GM would like us to think. Neither package wise nor - more important for us folks - designwise is it the automotive iPod, the car everybody wants to have. Your task is now to come up with a vehicle which is more consequent, greener, cleverer and last but not least sexier: an automobile which could really become the world's new hype-object and GM-savior."

2. Italian Exotic Lightweight Racer - "In the last years, a new car category has become more and more popular: In the framework of climate change and people thinking greener, automobiles like the Ariel Atom and the KTM X-Bow are starting to make much more sense (even for the super rich) than a big sports car like a Ferrari Enzo or a Lamborghini Murcielago. What is Italy's answer to this cars? Imagine a lightweight racer by one of the country's most exclusive car companies!"

Default Design Challenge: Italian Exotic Lightweight Racer



With everyone downsizing due to the economy and society embracing everything green, automobiles like the Ariel Atom and the KTM X-Bow are starting to make a lot more sense as opposed to the bigger sports cars from the likes of Ferrari and Lamborghini. Your mission designers is to get the Italian heavyweights in on this action and imagine a lightweight racer from one of Italy's most exclusive car companies.

Good luck designers!!! This contest will end on Jan 28.
Also, don't forget to post your development sketches and ideations in the Contest Development Thread

Mm, this could be interesting. I don't know much about lightweight racers but I think I'll try to come up with something over the weekend.

Ferrari roadster. Would have posted it alot earlier but posting is sooo annoyingly difficult as the site goes unresponsive.
Not liking it too much, but then again I was never good at designing Italian exotics. The engine has a glass cover and the car seats 2, one at front and another behind. As for the strange windshield... a 'go figure' option.

If I get a chance i'll try and get an entry in tomorrow.

Sorry for not participating in these design contests for a while.. my excuses are as follows lol:

1) My internet access is limited.. no internet at work anymore, have moved in with girlfriend who hasn't got broadband.

2) My music career is taking preference over other activities, so instead of doodling and designing i'm creating beats and synths e.t.c

But hopefully i'll be able to scan a quick entry in.
