Rally Fighter Interior ConceptStarted back in February, the Rally Fighter Interior Competition is the first interior design contest organized by Local Motors.

The brief was to design a global aesthetic for the first Local Motors production car, the Rally Fighter, designed by Sangho Kim and targeted to American Southwest market.

The grand winner of the contest is Romanian Mihai Panaitescu, who already placed first in the Boston Motors Competition with his “Boston Bullet”, and second in Chicago Motors Competition, and earned the first prize of $2,000.

Mihai’s InteriorConcept features an attractive minimalist aesthetic which includes only the necessary features.  It is defined by Local Motors as "difficult but appropriate for a true rally vehicle."

The concept is characterized by the adoption of aluminum panels and other visual links between the interior and exterior, like the door handle shape, which creates an overall pleasing and flight-inspired interior. 

The most outstanding feature is the center console, which seems to be floating on wings between the two front seats. The design will set the global tone for the Rally Fighter’s interior.

Russian designer Artem Popkov placed second and earned the $400 prize with his 4CE Project, featuring "a clean and confident design language which lends itself well to the military-style interior."

Navy Blue Interior ConceptWhile simple, this interior is able to incorporate the drivers’ existing, but not built-in, technology, like iPhones, GPS, etc.

Anthony Collard placed third with his Navy Blue project and earned the $200 prize. 

This design invigorates a sense of adventure and conquest with a standout orange roll cage, a true cockpit style dashboard, and unobtrusive back seats, which are molded directly into the car’s body.
