Icy Auto Fantasy

The muscle of the future is made of clouds. Clouds and sharp edges. Shawn Deutchman presents this concept car, the “Cerulian;” a pillow fantasy on the inside, protection on the outside. It seems to take those two simple concepts, comfort and protection, very basic elements of all modern autos, and takes them to a strange extreme. The Cerulian is based on 1970’s muscle cars, virtual reality, and the selling of the founding principal of the proposed manufacturer of the car; Opel: to build and sell dreams.

Check out this part of the original description: “Its cloud soft interior offers a personal guide to the avenues of the virtual world, while the proposal’s fractal exterior is simultaneously reflecting and revealing.”

Strange stuff! I wonder if it has a viewscreen like the USS Enterprise?

    think the front badge is a little small.

    I’m looking forward to being the pedestrian or cyclist getting transformed into minced meat by the sharp edges and having an extrusion made of my calves by the Opel emblem.

    But speaking of collisions, maybe this concept could redefine the very concept of crumple zones. For every accident, the car’s body would amass new creases, build itself a patina of sorts and carrying carry and display its history on its skin.

    Much like speeding tickets afford a heavy-footed driver tangible proof of bravado and bragging rights, such a car body could bear witness to the lesser vehicles that were recently crushed…

  • Looks fun for a film or story.

    Rael world not so aerodynamic.

    Fun if a little scary.

      The styling of it appears to be in the same design lineage as Supermans “Fortress of Solitude”.

    Very bold and architectural. The pleated form of the body could also reflect fashion.
    I would real be interested in viewing a section or interior view in relation to the driver.
    Overall, I like!

      Going by the provided render and description it looks like to have a large squished ball shape for the primary interior. Would be interesting to see the process of ingress/egress for passenger and cargo.

    that’s a car? where would my surfboard go? let alone the groceries. A pre-crushed car might be a self fulfilling prophecy.

  • Lone says:

    Too many dots, no real connections.

  • Demetrius says:

    It looks like the roof blew off someone’s shed. Ok… So… Not everything that can be rendered in 3D is genius.
