MCE MC1 Super Car

MCE MC1 super car is no more mysterious. Finally the wraps over the identity of the much speculated mystery super car has been taken off. It’s now official as the MCE MC1 and is the outcome of the joint efforts of MotorCity, a design firm based in Germany, and C2P Automotive. The former being the brain behind this concept and the latter executing it. Although it’s still strictly a concept, this super car is powered by a 600bhp V10 and features an all-carbon fiber monocoque chassis. Its wheels are enormous at 20-inches up front and 21-inches in the rear.

In terms of size, CAR states that the MC1 is "slightly shorter and narrower than a Lamborghini Murcielago LP640, and a mere 15mm higher." As of yet there is no word about this not-a-mystery-now car reaching the production stage but both companies need funding to get this baby on the road.

Turning Tower, Malmö, Sweden

The 190 meter tall concrete and steel tower turns 90 degrees from bottom to top.
Designed for a prominent urban site on the occasion of the European Housing Expo 2001, Calatrava’s residential tower for Malmö, at the city’s West Harbor, is based in form on his sculpture Turning Torso.
Conceived to enhance and enlarge a public area, defined by the intersection of two main roads, the “Turning Torso” building is meant to be seen as a free-standing sculptural element posed within the cityscape.

Rinspeed sQuba Concept Car

Rinspeed sQuba Concept Car features dive and drive

Mover Q your amphibious car designs are redundant, maybe they were good enough for the previous spies but the next-gen demands a more synced-up version. In case you need to take pointers, make sure you are there at the Geneva Motor Show (March 6th thru 16th, 2008), where Swiss design company Rinspeed will showcase their sQuba Concept Car. The makers claim that it is the world's first real diving car. And if its aquatic feats were not enough, the car can (at the push of a button) drive autonomously. It can dive to the depth of up to 10 meters (33 feet). The "sQuba" fulfills Rinspeed's boss Frank M. Rinderknecht long cherished dream of creating something that marries fictitious movie concepts to reality. Thus taking inspiration from "The spy who loved me", sQuba features an electric motor with powerful torque that drives the rear wheels. The thrust on the water is ensured by two propellers in the stern and two powerful jet drives in the bow propel the vehicle under water while diving. The car promises zero emissions thus zero pollution to the water. The light weight body with components made of futuristic Carbon Nano Tubes encloses in a streamlined manner the driver and passenger who are supplied with fresh breathing air by the self-contained on-board system.

Rinspeed sQuba Concept Car is a one-off car. No commercial production is planned.
