This is my entry for the latest NV Art Competition - Accelerate.
The brief was to design a futuristic concept car in ths style of Syd Mead.

My car is designed as a luxury, chauffeur driven grand tourer, capable of comfortably seating 5 in the plush seats.
Gull wing doors and Retractable side mirrors help with the sleek look and to keep the car as aero-dynamic as possible.
Vehicle uses an advanced hydrogen propulsion system and emits no co2 (hence no exaust pipes).
The vehicles suspension system is capable of dynamically adjusting ride height to facilitate high speed stability while still having great ground clearance when needed.
There is also a small rear facing camera mounted in the arial for when the side mirrors are retracted.

Modeled in Maya, rendered at 9000 pixels wide with mental ray and composited in Photoshop.

Absolutely gorgeous. I've worked with Syd for 20 years, and I can say he'd be very impressed.

Thank you, that would be a great experience working with Syd! I went to hear him speak not too long before this image was made, mad respect :)
Back again. Like the style of the work here.

Cool, look at my Syd Mead concept art work if you want.
Beautiful and stream lined and the environment looks blended.

I like how the vehicles stand out from the background! It looks really neat . . . and the style and color catch my eyes. Good job!
I would change the red light in front a different color.  It does look cool but it is a illegal and you don't want a driver thinking that's the back of your car.

Hiya mate,
