The second and third places – rewarded with cash prizes in the amount of $300 and $200 – went respectively to Gregory Rossi’s LM.380P and Chezhian Natarajan’s The Crawler.
Ugo Spagnolo’s LM 4X could be called an Adventure Utility Vehicle.
With space to haul and attach bikes, surfboards or skis, this design accommodates most adventure sports and a crew of 6.
A hidden compartment holds tents for camping, a first aid kit, toolbox, air compressor, reserve water and drawer for sports clothing.
As a bonus, a media center is built into the side of the vehicle to watch footage of video taken during the day’s adventure.
The performance capability of this vehicle is expressed with its off road proportions and full size spare tire sitting on the hood.
The 380.P Concept by Gregory Rossi is fun spirited, and inspired by nature and extreme adventures. This vehicle is equipped to deal with all aspects of cold snowy weather, focusing on safety and convenience for snowboarders. The unique styling and ultra convenience of the LM 380.P has become a community favorite. Gregory is the second place winner and a new Local Motors Community Member.
