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

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.

It’s a BMW, and it was built by Turkish engineers.

The firm behind this project is Letrons, and these are actual cars they’re working with. The one in the photo transforms in about half a minute from car to standing robot. It functions as a car, but there is as yet not capability to have a human driver. They drive these cars by remote control. However, the company says that will be possible in the future.

Letrons is selling these cars. They converted the one in the photo in 8 months.

Letrons is planning to build a whole fleet of transforming BMWs.

    What do the Chevrolet Camaro, Pontiac Firebird, AMC Javelin, Chrysler’s Plymouth Barracuda and the Dodge Challenger (specifically the second generation iteration) have in common? Besides all being sports-style coupes with long hoods and short rear decks, and belonging to the “pony” class of American-style cars, they were all inspired (along with the Toyota Celica and […]

  • Chevrolet Camaro

    Classified as both a “pony” car and a “muscle” car, the Chevy Camaro’s flexibility has been explored over six generations, despite a few gaps (most notably from 2002-2009) in the production. Its entrance into the industry in the late 1960’s was shrouded in mystery, including a code name (“panther”), intriguing, enigmatic telegrams, and a press […]

    Only One of Its Kind, the Phantom Corsair

    The 1938 prototype Phantom Corsair is the only one of its kind. Though some may dismiss it as a failure (production was never begun due to its benefactor’s death in a car accident a year after the prototype was made), it is also regarded as a vehicle ahead of its time, due to its design […]

    If there were two more disaparate vehicles, we haven’t seen them. The limousine, used for fancy occasions and even fancier lifeystles, with plenty of luxuries for the uber-wealthy, and the crazy motorcycle known the world over for being the transportation chosen by certain motorcycle clubs – and … it must have been a one night […]

  • Jeep Wrangler, Iconic Off-Road Vehicle

    The Jeep Wrangler has been through its share of upheaval, from being passed around by various automotive companies (such as American Motors in the late 1980’s to the Chrysler chain from the late 1990’s to the 2010’s and now to Arab American Vehicles since 2014), to being called by several different names (including the Jeep […]
