10 Cars that probably have 0 crash rating

I found an article on Wired showing 10 new concepts for cars of the future. These cars are built to be light and speedy since they’ll need to run on alternative fuels and electricity because the “future will be a place where a gallon of gas costs more than a gallon of Scotch,”-Wired (Chuck Squatriglia) lol. Because of this though, you would probably die if you ever came head-to-head with another car. That’s ok they’re only concepts after all ;). Anyways here’s some of the coolest most dangerous looking ones.

The Airflow

The Airflow

It’s designed by Pierre Sabas. It’s made completely out of glass and has eletric motors that drive the wheels. I like it but I’m pretty sure it’d shatter into a million pieces if a tree branch or rock hit it.



Created by Joonas Vartola this car appears to be the limo of the future. You can see that the passengers ride in a separate section from the driver. It looks like it’s pretty cramped for the driver but very comfy in the back seat.



Paul Howse is the designer of the enigma. His design beats the luxury of the Iomega if you ask me. “…the passenger compartment uses magnetic levitation to isolate it from the rest of the car.”-Wired (Chuck Squatriglia.) That’s definitely the coolest backseat I’ve ever heard of. It also runs off of electricity that it gets through solar panels but would probably snap in 2 if it ever got T-boned.



Last but not least (well maybe) is the Phoenix designed by Sergio Loureiro Da Silva. He compares his design to a motorcycle with a sidecar. It’s supposed to have maximum efficiency by using a turbine in the front with a kinetic axis and electric motors in the back. To me it looks like 2 smaller cars joined up. I dunno how efficient that it can be with all the air rushing through the middle trying to pull it apart. Also the turbine being smack dab in the middle would just cause more drag to the car. I guess it is just a concept but it definitely needs more work.

    yep yep, it’s ok when they decide to try to drive it they’ll realize what went wrong when it explodes on the highway lol

    Yeah, I love the whole glass thing, even if they make it of glass that doesn’t kill you when it shatters into millions of tiny pieces, you now have no car while you travel at whatever speed you were going when you hit that groundhog. Heaven forbid you hit a deer…
