Reptilian Roadster Design Concept

Offbeat

Design student offers a glimpse into the future of ground transportation.

The future of transportation is bleak according to designer Zhi Min Lin, who predicts cities will become overcrowded to the extent that flat roads will have to be replaced by 3D U-shape roads to make best use of the limited space. Dubbed the U-Wall Lizard, the vehicle is one that has been specially adapted to drive on these roads. Featuring four independently-powered wheels, expandable claw tires, and a unique suspension system, it can grip powerfully to a range of different terrains both horizontally and at steep angles.

Although the body is kept well balanced regardless of the terrain, perhaps this should be pitched as an off-roader instead a future road car or better still a vehicle in a video game.
