2005 I2B Concept Project Raven Le Mans Prototype

The first I2B Project is called Raven. In basics, it was designed to be a LeMans prototype for a European super car manufacturer. The conception was classic - two wheel drive with a longitudinal middle engine. The profile of the car was designed especially to has the lowest as possible center of gravity and the lowest air resistance.
To clear the design our first step was to build a clay model of the car in 1:10 scale. Some basic calculation for air resistance were made on Fluent. The first conception did not have enough down force so we decided to put a rear wing which at low speed would lay on the back end of the car.

2007 Tokyo Auto Salon - Part 5

We're psyched now that we can finally talk about our favorite vehicles of the 2007 Tokyo Auto Salon: the style wagons. These pimped-out minivans were our favorite part of the 2005 Tokyo Auto Salon, and after the disappointingly small number of VIP vans at the '06 show, we thought that the trend was dead. It turns out that the pimp-wagon scene was just resting, as VIP vans seemed to dominate the 2007 show.

So what makes a minivan a "style wagon"? Basically, a style wagon is a VIP-styled minivan. As is the case with VIP sedans, most style wagons have a simple white or black paint scheme (though silver is also acceptable), tasteful aero kits, large chrome wheels and no fender gap. Within the style wagon scene, the main vans of choice seem to be the Honda Odyssey, Nissan Elgrand and the Toyota Estima. Though Americans would look at any of these rides as "just a minivan", the massive size of these vans allows Japanese tuners to let their minds run wild. Though th…
