Design Talent Showcase – Ege Arguden 2035 Aston Martin AMR-AP LeMans Racer

This design study by emerging automotive design all-star Ege Arguden is a fascinating look into the future of endurance racing.

Design Talent Showcase – 2020 Lamborghini Perdigon by Ondrej Jirec

The Cadillac Estill design vision from last week is not the only incredible future exotic designed by Ondrej Jirec recently. While in his final years as a student at the Art College of Design in Pasadena, Jirec has also been dreaming of future Lamborghini’s. But his dreams turn out far better than any study-hall doodle we could ever achieve… that is for sure. This Gallardo-sized Lamborghini looks fairly traditional from the nose, but is actually a mean and deconstructed beast with ultra-short overhands, complex leading edges, and a full glass canopy.

Angelo Grenato - Delta Concept 12

Future Design Talent Showcase: Angelo Granata and His Lancia Delta Integrale Concept

It will take some stunning design ideas to shock Lancia back to fighting form of the 037 and Delta HF days. So here they are. And from an Italian local, no less!

Angelo Granata‘s Delta Integrale is very promising, because it appears to crack a design riddle that still flummoxes Fiat and Alfa-Romeo. What is the Fiat design issue? Execution.
