Let’s Talk About Syd Mead’s Incredible Concept Car Sketches

It’s not every day you run across a car-designing legend. Some of them make some pretty incredible road cars, but some, like Syd Mead, have a genius that can’t be contained by the confines of the every day. Some need to imagine a future where cars can fly and look slick as hell.

Someone Get This Sweet 3D-Printed Electric Motorcycle Into a Video Game, Stat

Before you even ask, no, this 3D-printed electric motorcycle is not production-ready. It is, as I have been informed, just a design demonstration. But it’s freaking sweet and I would very much like to play it in a game because that’s probably the closest that I’ll ever get to riding it.

There’s something especially heartbreaking about a beautiful concept car that never gets a chance to see the light of day. Especially one that looks like the super sick car in Blade Runner 2049. That’s right. I’m looking at you, 1972 Maserati Boomerang.
