The Terra Prix 2085 Competition was launched on last May and asked participants to create a racing vehicle and its for a race around the world in the year 2085. The results of the competition were really stunning, with many remarkable projects presented in a very elaborate and professional way.
Terrahornet is a racing vehicle designed for maximum efficiency and environmental respect. Power comes from the four in-wheel motors, which are fed by fuel cells running on organic materials. It has no windows in order to increase thermal insulation; the cockpit has a 360 degrees display with augmented reality. The racing vehicle is supported by the Scarab 2200, featuring rotating hollow wings inspired by Dyson’s technology that allow it to land vertically. Depending on the terrain, the wheels can be replaced with special components, such as composite wood feet or skis.
Squadro Concept takes inspiration from the GM Hy-Wire, and features a two-sided body layout with a translucent cabin that can rotate 360° around two axis. When facing extreme terrains, the Squadro can be turned into a three-wheeler to easily overcome obstacles. The supporting vehicle is a sleek aircraft powered by three rotors. Like in the Terrahornet, the powertrain uses four in-wheel motors coupled with fuel cells fed by four hydrogen tanks.
The Maloka vehicle uses futuristic bio-technologies, such as a self-regenerating skin and self-refilling tires. The support vehicle is a huge aircraft named “Koponan”, which is powered by four independent rotors.
Racing vehicle consisting of two modules connected with a “suspension gate” joint. The front module incorporates the front axle with twin wheelsand the “photon” engine. The rear one includes the cockpit and cargo area. Each one of the six wheels is powered by a hub-motor.
