The formula 1 of the decades 1930 and 1940 was the inspiration for my concept. I tried to design this car to maximize the feeling of driving and speed. The car is designed only for the driver. The source for this car is cells. This car should be a joint sports car, a car for free time and a car for fun. This concept has to allow maximal fun from driving. The pilot has to see everything before him, therefore the concept is encompassed by glass. The second passenger sits behind the pilot.
