Linda Anderson:

Self-Expression and Individualisation

"There is a need for a provocative and rebellious concept, a rebel against the blank car, aiming to strengthen the interactive relationship between man and car, to show a new direction on and off the road. A car with a personal 'face' which strives to fulfil the user's yearning for individuality."

Karl Zeeso:

The Sexuality & Interconnection of Car & Driver

"The car is simultaneously designed as both a mechanical physical extension of the body and also as an object of fashion and jewellery worn to visually enhance the human body. The goal is to blur or erase the line between sensuality, sexuality and the technical aspects of the car. To make the motion, emotion and mechanics one."

Tobias Nagel:

The antidote project - PANTA REI

"Panta Rei presents a sustainable scenario for connecting people with places by adding a new layer of flexible infrastructure to the metropolis, utilising waterways in mega cities such as Tokyo and London to accommodate a system of floating spaces for residential or business purposes."

Gareth Thomas:

H2O

"In their present form cars are destroying life, but a fuel cell car has the potential to actually nurture it, in particular plant life; feeding it with its harmless waste product, water. Urban environments would benefit from the added beauty of organic life contained in moving transparent sculptures, whilst the dangerous levels of carbon dioxide created from the burning of fossil fuels could be reduced and converted to oxygen."

Heikki Naulapää:

Aprilla Magnet

"Magnet's riding sensation, due to exposed bodywork, extreme leaning characteristics, three-wheel layout and seating position only inches from the ground ensures a thrilling ride.

"Magnet is a sustainable, low-emission, hybrid vehicle, powered by a small combustion engine with an integrated electric engine in every wheel."

David Beasley:

Prometheus

"Vehicles need heritage to demonstrate progression. Presenting a 'retro-futuristic' vehicle provides a modern reinterpretation of this era of technological expressiveness. Prometheus embodies the spirit of the art of 'motionless speed' with classical elegance and ultra-modern technology."
