Well, here it finally is. The OverRider ATV Concept (nice name, huh?) - the ultimate all-terrain crossover vehicle. As you can see, I've tried to exaggerate both the 'street-car' and 'off-read' styles and merge them into one big, scary... thing...
Ok, now for some details:
When driving on asphalt, the suspension automatically lowers itelf so the body is about 5mm off the ground. When going off-road, the suspension is heightened to allow for more rough terrain, and the arms supporting the back axel section are pivoted downwards, raising the rear of the vehicle about 600mm. Off the road, the spikes on the 30" front wheels add leverage to the front-wheel-drive system, and also increases grip, enhancing the overall handling. The tyres are
low profile, but they're...uh...special, so they're fine for off-road
In place of the typical, highly breakable headlights, there are four small high-powered 1000W halogen globes, similar to those used in studio lights. Unlike conventional headlights, they are safely tucked away in a recess, protected by the protruding front wheels.
The entire body of the vehicle is forged from hardened titanium alloy, and is no less than 10mm thick throughout. So as you can imagine, it's tough. It'll total about 50 hatch-backs and 25 sedans before you start to see any scratches
Naturally, the interior is leather throughout, has brushed metal trims, electric everything, 200-stack CD/MP3/DVD player, iPod attatchment, WiFi internet AND
six beverage cup holders
All there really is left to say is that I had a great time creating this vehicle. Just to remind you, I didn't actually sketch or make any plans for this model, I created it entirely off the top of my head. Made it up as I went along
... I think that's
something to be proud of...
Oh, and it took about one week of spare time from start to finish
