From the mind of Hungarian designer Peter Vardai comes this Mercedes design study named the Blackbird. Vardai’s inspiration for the concept was the SR-71 Blackbird spy plane, a machine that evokes images of purpose and speed.

That the design study’s color and lighting effects reminds us of the recent Tron movie was probably done on purpose. The message that the design study seems to impart is that Mercedes is a company that embraces the future and… Continue Reading »

Next up on our three-part Los Angeles Auto Show Design Challenge series is the Maybach DRS. If you’re wondering what DRS stands for, well then so did we. Apparently, it’s short for “Den-Riki-Sha”, which means electric powered rickshaw. If you’re new to that term, rickshaws are ancient forms of public transportation back in Japan in 1870 where instead of horses pulling carriages, a person ferries you around instead, supporting the rickshaw’s front frame on his shoulders.
