1 Lexus Nuaero Concept is Straight Out of Starship Troopers on Tue Sep 14, 2010 4:15 am

Does one reach for a camera or a can of RAID when the Lexus Nuaero concept pulls into the driveway? Sure Jon Rådbrink’s design looks incredibly cool, fast and futuristic; but then again I’ve also spent the last few minutes looking over my shoulder to see if Sigourney Weaver was about to burst from the wall in a load lifter to do battle with it in my office. As it turns out, there’s a lot more to this design than just looks, and Rådbrink believes the car’s “low weight and large presence” will be the way premium cars could be manufactured in the future. Oh, and it’s loaded with tech, too.
To drive this catamaran-inspired luxury car, the driver would use a drive-by-wire steering pad and a completely customizable multi-point touch screen. Rådbrink contends that our hands are far more accurate for driving than our feet, so he’s eliminated pedals. Everything is controlled via the steering wheel. “Since the car is powered by electrical motors [found in each of the four wheels],” Rådbrink says, “there is no transmission and you break intuitively by pushing the steering wheel away from your body.”


The kicker is that this 14.5-ft. car is designed with lightweight materials meant to increase mileage and efficiency. How light is light? Try roughly the same weight as the diminutive SMART fortwo. “I believe that this design paradox of low weight and large presence could be the way we’ll define premium in the future,” Rådbrink said. Just don’t forget the futuristic airbags if this ever makes it into production.
