the idea is that this vehicle uses two boosters on it's side which has magnetic coils inside that suspends a steel rod in mid air. When activated, the magnets will tighten and the steel rod will rotate very fast creating a large gust of wind, boosting the vehicle forward. hence the name tornado tunnel.

An automotive propulsion engineer's concept car from the future, yay! My first thought: the overall design has seeds in current supercar technology (mechanical output, with some electric recovery/delivery tossed in to increase BHP).

However it looks a bit too tall from this perspective; high center of gravity vehicles make okay SUV's but not sports cars, the tires almost looked tacked on. Also the cockpit looks way too small to accommodate a driver. In my old job, I used to have to build from drawings (much worse than this), and hoped they'd translate onto to the screen well.

A well deserved 5/5! Looks like a F-1/F-1000 kinda car, but likely would fall in the category of modified production/normal street car, with a body kit and an aftermarket tornado tunnel on the back... slightly Rat Finkish considering the mass over the back wheels :3

WOW you seem to really know your stuff
To be honest, most of the parts i put in there is simply because i thought it looks cool without any knowledge of how it will actually work. Vehicles isn't something i'm an expert on :p but i find your advices helpful for me to remember next time. So thanks :D

Very cool, I design... well help design motors for electric cars, and this has sense to it, it would work pretty much the same as a regular electric motor.
what i like about your concept is that if the magnet was strong enough to spin jet style turbines you would have a "flying car" lol

the car looks cool, i like the artistic style, if you wanted to make it look a little more racy try making it look lower to the ground.
