The Elementz concept by Rob Wolkers was selected among 60 entries and resulted the grand winner of the design challenge started by Burton Car, a Dutch kitcar maker.
More recently it was awarded the first prize in the Model category at the SolidWorks Product Design Contest 2007 (see above pictures).
The Elementz is based on the Citroën 2CV frame and engine. As Rob explains, "my design key was maximizing the fun and driving-experience. To get the most of those out of this platform it is kept as light as possible and extremely open to make it a sensational ride."
