Design inspiration can come from many different places and things. Some of them are quite odd, like the new Maserati Quattroporte 2030 concept. The vehicle was designed by Yaroslav Chumachenko, a 25-year old transportation design student at the Istituto Europeo di Design in Turin, Italy.
This is no ordinary design though, as this car can adopt minor design changes. It can be used as an SUV, sedan, or a rear-engine sports car. While that is astounding, what really got our attention was the designer’s inspiration. Chumachenko used a dinosaur as inspiration.
We can sort of see it, as the front of the car appears to have large fangs like a dinosaur, but were not sure about the rest. The car uses a skeletal-like platform to provide flexibility. The car can change shape by using Stereolithography additive manufacturing technology.
In the safety department, those ribs will provide a sturdy structure as they are attached to the longitudinal member. As crazy as this car might be, it sure does make us wonder if these cars will ever see the light of day.
