Hi All!
SharkFX was used to do all the conceptual work of this car project. Then I used it to design all the carbon fibre structural components and the outer shape.

Hope its not too awkward (I had to stick to this unusual configuration:))

Excellent! My car does that self-parking thing and it's disconcerting to let go of the wheel and let it do its thing, it can park in a space with 500mm either end, but this would take it to a whole new level. My wife and I have just built a house with a slab driveway as the only concession to off-street parking. We gave some consideration to making it a turntable to make it forwards-only drive-in/drive-out, but a car that can turn in its own length would be another way.

Great work Albano !
I like this multi directional beetle concept.
The global design makes it unique.
