Over the years we have featured a variety of weird and wonderful concept car designs that have been created, but a new and very unique creation called the Audi Airomorph.
The Audi Airomorph concept car has been designed by Art Center College of Design student Eric Kim and uses fabric panels to adjust its aerodynamics, which have been inspired by racing catamarans.
The body of the concept car is made from a single piece of a silver, expansion-resistant material stretched over a ridged framework positioned underneath.
The fabric is then anchored at the wheels, front and rear sections with movable cables, together with hydraulic actuators that pull the wires to position the aero panels as required. Eric Kim is a recent graduate (spring 2014 semester) from the Art Center College of Design in Passadena, CA. explains :
“I started from scratch and had the freedom to deliver and execute a white space design for the future,”-“Having the great opportunity to collaborate with Jenns Mooler in the Aerodynamics/Engineering Department, we worked together to create the best possible solution of a blown diffuser that is not only functional but atheistically pleasing as well.”
Projekt: Airomorph was sponsored by Audi AG and the model was assembled by Design Center California.For more information on the new Audi Airomorph concept car jump over to the Car Body Design website for details.
