Anybody want to build the Hennesy K Cell GT?

There’s something about a child’s imagination that brings out smiles on our faces. Whether they’re drawing their families with stick figures or imagining their ideas of what cars will look like in the future, there’s are no grey areas involved in how their imaginations work. What they put on paper ends up being more intriguing, if not fantastical, than anything we, as adults, can come up with.

GoCompare, a Welsh auto insurance company, put that to the test when it invited a group of children to draw their ideas of what they think the cars of the future will look like. The results are incredible, if not amazing. At the very least, they’ll bring us back to a time when we also thought the cars of the future would run on chocolate.

Beast Racer 210 by Harnitha, 11

Who cares about the future of autonomous driving technology when you can drive Harnitha’s Beast Racer 210. It’s not only a car that’s shaped like a dragon sitting on four wheels, it’s also an amphibious vehicle that can function both on land and water. It also has flex-glass windows and dragon wings that allow it to activate “hover flight” mode.

Oh, and you don’t have to worry about the problem of malfunctioning headlamps because the whole car glows in the dark! Here we are, racing to develop self-driving cars and nobody’s ever thought of making cars glow in the dark.

Bumblebee Prime by Zach, 11

11-year-old Zach knows where to get inspiration from. His creation, called Bumblebee Prime, is actually a Transformer. It functions as a traditional car, but it can also function as a robot with a brain made of spare metal parts. Don’t sleep on Zach’s creation because when Bumblebee Prime is in full-on robot made, it can use a variety of equipment to shame any car that wants to test its mettle. The robot’s head, for example, has a rocket launcher and a machine gun. The belt has a self-fixing mechanism, and the boots have rockets. The robot can also speak, a huge upgrade compared to the largely mute Bumblebee.

Candy Robo Car by Isla, 6

Who needs electric power when the cars of the future end up running on chocolate? Six-year-old Isla isn’t sweating the tech race to develop electric cars because her future ride-of-choice, the Candy Robo car, is powered exclusively by the sweet stuff. Mind you, it’s not just chocolates, either. There’s a booster function in the car that’s powered by cupcakes!

If those aren’t cool enough, the Candy Robo car is also equipped with x-rays, a garden on the roof, a robot head that functions as a steering wheel, multi-direction driving, and the coup de grâce, a robot assistant on the roof to serve you.

Hennessy K Cell GT

You can tell that 11-year-old Kyre knows a thing or two about the auto industry. He may have misspelt “Hennessy,” but I’m letting that go because the car also has the “GT” nomenclature in its name. Take a deep dive into the Hennessy K Cell GT’s features, and you can immediately tell that Kyre has a good idea of what the industry is going through at the moment.

Apparently, Kyre wants the envisions the K Cell GT to run on a generator that comes with 11,000 volts of electricity. That’s serious power on a car whose back wheels are connected to the electric generator, which helps generate more electricity for the car’s use. Is it me, or did Kyre just include a loose version of Formula One’s KERS system in the K Cell GT? Even better, the four wheels can be tucked in at a press of a button, turning the K Cell GT’s alloy wheels into helicopter propellers that allow it to fly out of traffic conditions. I’m calling it now. Kyre is going to have a future in the auto industry.

Hover Car by Paula, 11

Paula’s Hover Car is better than any hover car in existence today. That’s a fact, unless you can show me a hover car with two floors, has solar panels on its roof, and magnets at the bottom to allow it to travel on magnetic roads in the future. Have you seen a hover car with these kinds of features and abilities? No? Me, neither.

Paula’s on to something here.

The Mega Alset by Joel, 11

Amphibious vehicles are common themes in this design exercise. It’s the same treatment 11-year-old Joel went for when he created the Mega Alset hydroelectric vehicle. Not only can the car run on land and water, it also has windows made of flexible glass, a voice recognition system, and an assortment of wings and rockets that can be used at any moment’s notice to fulfil a variety of functions, including driving faster and flying. Notice the share fin roof too? Joel threw that in to help the Mega Alset drift through water.

The Boban Six-Wheeler by Boban, 11

If Boban’s creation looks like a train that’s riding on six wheels, that’s because it is a train that’s riding on six wheels. It also has a body made of “super strong metal,” flexible windows, and rubber wheels that allow it to travel on water.

The Boban Six-Wheeler — ok, I made that name up — is relatively more subdued than other entries on this list, but it does not lack in imagination. When was the last time you ever thought about driving your own train cars during your morning commute? I certainly haven’t thought about it.

The Unicar by Danielle, 11

left right

If Harnitha has the dragon-inspired Beast Racer 210, Danielle has the Unicar, a colorful vehicle inspired by, you guessed it, unicorns. The Unicar is arguably the most creative car on this list. At the very least, it’s one of the most attention-grabbing. That’s partly due to its features, which includes headlights that come with “eyelash cameras,” multicolored wings and tails, and turbo boost.

On the aesthetic side, the Unicar features the smiling face of a unicorn and a horn on the hood as added decoration.

The Car of the Future by Charlie, 11

Charlie’s “car of the future” is arguably the most straightforward car on this list. It carries the traditional look of a car, complete with the presence of a canopy-style roof line. Move to the ambitious side of the Car of the Future, and you’ll be treated with electric wheels, touch screen doors, and a headlight system that uses a rainbow configuration.

Rainbow Convertible 300 by Charlotte, 12

Last but not least is Charlotte’s Rainbow Convertible 300. It’s different because it’s actually a car and a house, thrown together to make it easier for us in the future. The colorful nature of the concept is owed to its rainbow-like looks, while the presence of the large angel-like wings on opposite sides of the car help it fly around to avoid traffic jams.
