It has no windows in order to increase thermal insulation; the cockpit has a 360 degrees display with augmented reality.

Terrahornet Concept Power comes from the four in-wheel motors, which are fed by fuel cells running on organic materials.

Depending on the terrain, the wheels can be replaced with special components, such as composite wood feet or skis.

The racing vehicle is supported by the Scarab 2200, featuring rotating hollow wings inspired by Dyson’s technology that allow it to land vertically.

2nd Place: Squadro Concept

Designed by Mahdi Garoosi (Impulse), the 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.
