Gallery: London Designer Creates a Super Futuristic Solar-Powered Conce...

 

London designer Omer Sagiv created this solar-powered concept car that looks like it’s straight out of the latest sci-fi movie. The concept car is referred to as the SPV (Solar Power Vehicle) and Sagiv states that it’s made of aluminum with flexible thin modules fixed to it and that the shaft in the center of the SPV functions as an in-built cooling system. The aerodynamic shape of the concept allows it to collect energy in any sunny environment. Even better, the concept can also use the extra energy that it collects from its solar panels to power its owner’s house!

Obviously this concept wouldn’t work in today’s world – one wrong turn or missed stop light and you can say bye bye to your beloved solar car. However, the car’s futuristic design is definitely noteworthy. We can only dream of cars like this being available in the future!
