    Olds Trofeo FX

    Here's my first take on the "new" Oldsmobile. I wanted to get away from any and all past vehicle design cues or silhouettes so it's mostly a jumping off point. It would be a revolutionary direction, something they would need to take on the ever increasing competion.

    I like it a lot. I love the hubless front wheels. One of your best designs, the rear half could have a little more detail, I'd like to see that developed.

    You're absolutley right. Like I said, it's a jumping off point, I've got some even better stuff for the new '98'.

    A great design of course, but I'd prefer to see a more production-ready vehicle.

    Guys, move forward, don't get bogged down with "production ready" stuff. This is the space to design not just take the same old tired 3-box design and slap an Olds grill on them. Explore really "out there" stuff and then pull back and make something that's really a head turner!!

    That is beautiful. I love how you have set up the front suspension. I like how you have thought outside of the box for this competition. so, what do you have planned for Oldsmobile? Supercars only? more? Just wondering

    where does the engine go?
    it needs to be a higher vehicle.
