This is one fabulous looking concept car, that I must say. Every once in a while a concept comes along that is not only fabulous in its plan, but fabulous in its rendering as well. Take a look at the realism in these digital illustrations and tell me you aren’t impressed by their excellence. Then lemme tell you about this car. It’s called the Astrum Meera, and it features several elements which play a role in safety, sustainability, and what the creators call “practical design.”

Practical design! Fa! Who could need such a thing! There are some people (people with lots of money in their pockets) who love practical design, that is, design that isn’t that far away from the real world, who are just ready and raring to go toss money around – practical designers, take a peek.

This car has built-in sensors near the exhaust that track the levels of CO2 and alert the driver should they be exceeding normal range. It’s got wheel rims which work with magnetic levitation, making the car fantastically light and fast. The mirrors on the sides of the car move down inside the vehicle, hiding when in park, rolling back out when the car starts up (my uncle use to have a car with headlights like this – so sweet!) These same mirrors have built-in cameras that display inside the car, allowing the driver sight without turning their head – especially useful in inclement weather.

And on top of all that, this mad maniac of a car looks really radical and totally tubular. It looks spectacular, yet real. I’m sure that was the designers intent. Rippin roaring good time of an auto.

    The best part of this is back of it.

    I like it from most views but the rear (where it looks like an appliance). Nice job overall.

    3D programmes unite! One question….how do you get in it?

    This car would need to be an electric car, and wouldn’t have any CO2 emissions at all. But even if it had a combustion engine, why would a sensor that reads CO2 be needed? Computers in cars already know how much fuel that’s being burned. A CO2-meter would be redundant.

    If maglev is to be used instead of rims, you’d have to have electric power (electromagnetic suspention, EMS), to keep the car floating, or a combination of EMS and EDS (electrodynamic suspention). Anyway, you’d need batteries. Batteries that pack a ton of power to accelerate and decelerate the car.

    Maybe the designer thought he’d use a combustion engine to power a generator and that’s why he wanted a CO2-sensor, I don’t know, I’m only speculating.

    That’s a huuuuuuuuuge-a§§ windshield. Windshields are heavy as hell, since they need to be strong = baaad economics, especially for a electric car with already heavy batteries.

    And since covers cockpit, it’d have to be even stronger, in case the car flips over in a crash.

    And this windshild will have to have crumple zones, so that it, in case of a crash, crumples up away from the passengers.

    Other than those small thoughts of mine, it looks okay and I liked the idea with the rear-view mirrors and the windshield would give the passengers a great ride, as long as the driver doesn’t get the sun in his/her eyes.

    That is one badly designed car concept. Too many lines going in all directions, "speed"holes of the oddest shapes and forms, no general concept holding it together… back to the drawing boards please, this type of stuff would make you flunk your first year as an automotive design student.

    I love this concept! true for the windshields but it may be expensive and heavy now, but later, things will change, just like how computers evolved from a big room of processors to microprocessors. Great job to the designer and 3D is superb!

    I like the general shape of it, looks sleek, however there are some parts which seem randomly drawn, like the headlights… I see no connection between them and the rest of the car. Those speed-holes up front too – they'd be useful for brakedisc ventilation, but how'd they work in a magnetic system?

    'rims that work by magnetic levitation'??

    oh dear. Another 'designer' with a pirated copy of Lightwave and wilful disregard for engineering.
