So periodically I like to look at Google images of futuristic motorcycles or futuristic cars to see if I can gather some inspiration or ideas to push the super cycle forward. Well, bingo. Today I found some.
Behold the Citreo Taranis in the picture for the post. Beautiful in a cold, futuristic way. I love it.
Here are some details about the Taranis:
The Citroen Taranis is a two-seater off-road racer concept.
The Taranis is powered by electric motors located within each wheel hub which lower its centre of gravity and greatly improving handling.
The name Taranis is taken from the Celtic God of Thunder or wheel god, often depicted with a thunderbolt in one hand and a wheel in the other.
With its large outboard double-jointed wheel set-up, the Taranis has a huge footprint, resulting in an intimidating presence and generous travel in the suspension. It can therefore take on the most uneven terrain that many 4x4s could not attempt.
The double jointed front swing arms help to reduce what would otherwise be an enormous turning circle.
A luxury finish combined with a unique layout sets this off-roader apart from other concepts, with gullwing doors adding a final touch of flair.
There is a lot to digest here, so I will look over the specs and see what we can borrow. One thing that did come to mind though feasibility is a question; what if two vehicles could connect together to temporarily become a four passenger vehicle and split apart as appropriate to become two passenger vehicles later. Sometimes a four passenger car, sometimes two two passenger cars and sometimes they are just badass motorcycles. Hmmm. Trying not to get carried away, but I like it 🙂
I’m sure I’ll find stuff to borrow. Regardless, cool vehicle though!
