A Dakar Dream Machine

Designed for the Dakar Rally in the desert, this far-out dune buggy called the AARD naturally takes inspiration from an animal right at home in the sand – the thorny devil. The 4×4’s stance and structure mimic that of the lizard’s. Its unique tire/wheel system features in-wheel motors and they’re highly adapted to tackle a variety of terrain including sand, mud, grass and erg.

Designer: Jaekang Ha

    Incredible concept vehicle and the industrial design is absolutely stunning. Is there anyway you could elaborate on the magnetic suspension and how it works?

    Thanks
