If someone tells you that he recently saw a flying saucer, touched her or even been inside, do not rush to turn a finger to his temple, while his other hand to dial an ambulance. Maybe this person just went on the Milan Design Week 2011, which was presented concept cars Citroen UFO , having the form of “classic” UFO.
UFOs in the past fifty years is one of the most used in the popular culture characters. Including “flying saucers” love and designers. Remember at least a table lamp in the form of UFO or floor lamp UFO Lamp from Baita Design.
But now design in the style of “flying saucer” and got to the car. Anyway, this is the kind of concept cars is Citroen UFO, presented at the Milan Design Week 2011.
This unusual car was created jointly by Citroen and design studio Ora-ito. However, at the Milan Design Week 2011 was only visualized the concept car, not a full-fledged operating the vehicle. Indeed, in his Citroen UFO creators have tried to show what might be the machine of the future, as it sees Citroen and Ora-ito.
And the best shape for flying machines – it is, of course, familiar to us by science fiction films and TV series “UFO.” Thanks to its minimalist, this form allows you to achieve maximum performance on aerodynamics and practicality. Of course, the Citroen UFO does not provide a single wheel. After all, where have you seen that “flying saucers” move along the ground on wheels, but did not fly through the air? In general, if mankind something and learned and hypothetical aliens, that is their design finds.
Citroen and Ora-ito not announce any dates the emergence of such vehicles (even about a decade). They simply show their opinion, albeit a bit naive, to further develop technologies in the automotive industry.
