For the concept, studio founder Lucas Colombo Carbone, formerly at Mercedes Benz Advanced Design – took inspiration from the iconic Audi Streamliner (1937).
The name 1M1M ( One Man-One Machine ), hints at the focus of the project, which is to explore and pay homage to the relationship between the Driver and the Car.
The exterior shell of this extreme single-seater was designed as a wind-cutting blade and is “minimally shaped by just a few soft surfaces, which are controlled by a unique contour “action line”, that defines the car’s sporty character.”
Among the driving principles of the project were the ideas of simplicity, lightness and optimal aerodynamics, and one of the main goals was to create a “rolling-sculpture” that could be easily used every day.
The “monoposto” (single-seat) cockpit can be accessed by opening a unique rotating cover, which reveals the car’s carbon fiber chassis, just when then pilot is about to step on board
The concept was designed by Lucas Colombo Carbone and modeled in 3D by Esteban Diaz Gonzalez.
