Skarab - Mars Rover - Front

By Secap
This is a Concept of a Mars Rover i made for a VW contest, about a year ago.

Since it was made in a hurry to meet the deadline, the renders were awful so i decided to retexture and make some new renders for deviantart; and since the contest is no more,  i changed the VW logos with mine ;).

The vehicle design was inspired from a scarab/bug/beetle (since it was a VW contest) and the styling design was made to match the brand cues.
Its doors open in a gullwing fashion, but at the same time rotate in order to face backwards when fully opened, giving the impression of a beetle when opens its back to raise the wings.
For propulsion, the vehicle uses electric motors placed inside the pods on the hubless wheels which are fed by nuclear batteries, and each wheel is able to turn, to help improve the turning radius.
The Skarab has a rear external cargo area, and the suspension consists of a torsion bar system.

Details of the Work:
The model was made in Rhinoceros 4.0 and rendered in Keyshot . Postproduction of the logo and disclaimer made in Photoshop.

Hope you Like it!

Nice! It's so cute. If I were selected as an astronaut to visit Mars, I'd definitely would order a personal one to roam on the Red planet. Anyway, I shared it at…
Thank you! Wish you inspiration.
