Congrats to Giulio Partisani for his wild and sculptural entry 'Socom' for 1st place
I had entered another car design into the Local Motors competition, this one was for Chicago. The competition was to design a car that looks cool, but is practical enough to run in the snow and Chicago's not so smooth roads and fit the classic 'gangster' mentality. Mine was the 'Interceptoor'.
See My Design!
here's my write up on the Interceptor:
About my Design:
The Chicago Interceptor is a multi-purpose low slung cruiser. I works as a sleek family sport wagon with it's cool low stance, space for up to 5 adults and storage. It can also serve as a Police cruiser in the same fashion as the 'Paddy Wagon's' of old. Then there's the interceptors darker side... the sinister gangster ride. With it's minimal dark windows, unique reverse sloped windscreen and classic lines the interceptor calls on the 20's and 30's dark rides of the mafia. To handle Chicago's adverse weather and not so smooth streets the Interceptor is equipped with performance Haldex all wheel drive linked to a slick 7-speed DSG gear box and all powered by a clean burning torque filled turbo diesel TDI engine. To save some fuel in the stop and go traffic it is also equipped with Hybrid drive. Sinister angry eyes made of L.E.D. technology use less energy than H.I.D. lamps and pierce the dark city streets.n The Interceptor can be many things....which one will it be for you?
