Race Cars in 2025 ? Part 1
Who knows what the future holds…
The LA AUTO SHOW has run a design challange to most maufacturers to come up with the kind of race cars you might expect to see in 2025. Looking in the future does strange things to people. Most individuals these days still think that in a mere 15 year’s time from now will be teleporting through wormholes, somehow forgetting that 15 years back, things were pretty much the same, only eletronic devices were bigger and gas was cheaper. Here are 4 of the 8 models I’ll be showing you in part 1.
BMW Hydrogen 2025
This car is a zero-emissions salt-flats racer, but here’s the kicker: it’s made of scrap! Bins, barrels and, we assume, the remains of the Big Three. There are fish in the fuel tank. I’ts madness.
Volkswagon Bio Runner
An ultra-efficient Baja buggy wich can lean through corners in ture motorcycle style. The Bion Runner is powered by turbines spinning up to a heady 500,000rpm. Thats still less than a Honda s2000, isn’t it?
Audi slightly misses the just go crazy, instead they simply gives its R10 Le Mans car a new paint job. And electric power. Where’s the proton-accelerating hyper-gubbinator, chaps?
A multi-terrain racer, also good for hunting elk. The ‘8×4’ wheel drive is bonkers, and we heartly approve. Who says wheels have to be round? The laws of physics, you say? Well shove your physics, you bunch of yes men!
