Futuristic Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

Designer Adam vows that he never looked to any specific design while conceptualizing the City Vehicle, but I think if we were to re-do the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang car for the future urbanites then this would be it. Hosting all eco factors like solar technology on the surface of the roof, regenerative braking, electric motor and capabilities of harnessing wind power as well, this concept car is meant only for city commute. To keep the vehicle light and easy all high-tech gadgetry has been ditched and only the bare essentials incorporated.

The car is meant to seat 2 people in a 1+1 in line seating arrangement, or 1 person with luggage. This is coz Adam believes that mostly people commute alone in the city (say to work) and rest of the space in the car is wasted.

Practical, viable or simply OTT; I reserve my judgment on that, but I kinda like the cozy appeal that it has.

    This looks nothing like the Chitty chitty bang bang, even if it were totally re-done. The only possible similarity are the wheels.

    • M.S.W. says:

      Looks more like an Penn. Dutch Amish carriage, right down to the road hazard triangle on the rear.

      Definitely could use a better suspension.

  • Bernard says:

    Oh god! Bahause! The worst font ever!

  • Eric Foor says:

    The wheels look terrible and the car aerodynamics… It just looks like that whatever powers it, wouldn’t get enough mileage with that design.

  • Henrique Staino says:

    The design looks ok. But it doesn’t seem to be a very smart design for an urban vehicle. When you’re talking about urban vehicles for the next thousand years goos usage of space is everything!

  • Andy C says:

    Without any suspension the ride would be terrible! Aerodynamically ineficient.

    • Henrique Staino says:

      We’re talking about city vehicles. The average speed in cities nowadays is below 20mph.

  • Andy C says:

    It doesn’t matter how fast you’re going, you’d still feel every bump and pothole in the road without suspension. With the number of spped bumps in UK cities these days this would be very uncomfortable.

    And even at 20mph the car would still be subject to drag which would mean that it would require more power to overcome it.

    But the ‘brick and mortar’ store is a busy, bustling arena of quality, vintage LP’s, with a special emphasis on the 60’s music scene.
    Since the advertising domain is a big arena, there are
    different types of music that is required by different advertisement campaign. Benefits of such development is exceptional
    problem solving, mind management, exceptional artistic design, enhanced musical focus, enhanced mathematical
    understanding and enhanced psychic ability to name a few.
