Michelin Challenge Design 2006: the gallery

Michelin has published an extensive gallery of the projects displayed at the Michelin Challenge Design 2006 event during the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.


“Silver Shark” by Sun Qi (China)The 2006 edition of the Michelin Challenge Design was built on four previous challenges, where participants had explored Italian, French, Chinese and German automotive design.

This edition was focused on vehicle concepts for the California market that “incorporate an alternative powertrain and consider the effect of that powertrain on tire size and appearance and the role electronic technologies could play in tire systems”, offering a global platform for students and designers to share their visions of design for automotive industries in the 21st Century.

On the official website, there is an extensive gallery of 11 scale models and 22 sets of drawings with high resolution images.

Other interesting resouces include a report from the CCS (College for Creative Studies) competition and four articles by C. Reed about the History of California Vehicle Design.
