Hexawheel Performance Vehicle

Hexawheel Performance Vehicle

How many of you have already heard of the Hexawheel concept by Mercedes? Speed bumps a problem for your off-road vehicle? How about giant obstacles almost as tall as your vehicle itself?

The Hexawheel is a 6-wheel concept vehicle intended for extreme ATV climbing. In Mercedes’ concept, the vehicle can climb heights limited only by the length of the vehicle.

Weight distribution for the Hexawheel is even on each axle while the vehicle is in normal position, which helps it climb gently, without any need to jump.

In order to prevent damage in the wild, where sharp rocks project upwards, the bottom of the vehicle is plated so it can slide along any such obstacles.

The vehicle is also designed to climb and turn simultaneously. The hydraulic cylinders control the appropriate angle of the vehicle’s rear length in accordance with the steering system.

Have you ever seen an ATV climb like this before?

Transparent Cars

The company ZF Friedrichshafen made the presentation of its products through a transparent car.

The Consumer Electronics Show is the world’s largest consumer electronics trade fair, which every year is held in January in Las Vegas. In recent years, more and more space in the exhibition halls has been used to occupy exhibitions for automotive companies.

General Motors CEO Mary Barra: “We will see more change in the industry in the next 5 to 10 years than we have in the last 50.”

So does that mean we’re going to see transparent cars on the roads?

Apparently, manufacturers are targeting Asia with these, and maybe Pakistan as well.

  • Plymouth Prowler, unique design

    by on July 3, 2017 - 0 Comments

    While the Plymouth Prowler may have been marked a failure in one sense (the choice to utilize a V6 instead of a V8 engine has been touted as the main culprit for the vehicle’s low sales numbers and production output), it’s one of the most interesting, unique vehicles from a design perspective, and might in […]
