Renault Neptun Concept

The Renault Neptun is a luxury coupe concept vehicle inspired by sea waves. The author is Romanian designer Dragos Pop.

The design of the Neptun is inspired by the movements and the power of sea waves. The main goal of the fluid and strong lines and exterior proportions is to express power and distinction.

As Dragos explains, "When I started to work on this project I tried to capture the spirit of a powerful sea wave, that is beautiful to look at, but powerful enough to demand respect."

"That is why I named it Neptun, after the Roman God of the Sea."

The Neptun is targeted to upper-class customers, who want their car to be elegant and refined without being too eye-catching.

"The probable competitor products would be the Mercedes SLR and the Aston Martin Vanquish."

The 3d modelling was done using 3D Studio MAX and V-Ray, with some post processing work in Photoshop.
