BRB Evolution Folding Car Looks Like A Dyson. This Time An Upright.

FILED UNDER: Cars, Concept, Design, Technology

Designer Daniel Bailey has taken the folding car concept to a new level with his BRB Evolution, which looks like a Lamborghini when in driving mode, but is as compact as an upright Dyson when parked.

The foldable design manages to cut the original size of the car in half to squeeze into the tiniest of parking spaces. Apparently the car rolls itself up once you’ve exited and uses two rollers to slide the car in sideways.

As you can see in the pictures below the styling is sleek and sexy, inspired by the Lamborghini Murcielago and the Peugeot 908. The car would use a hydrogen fuel cell for power and feature a 180 degree moon roof.

It’s a fascinating concept that essentially jacks the car up onto its nose to minimize its use of parking space. The transformation would have to be fast, I’d imagine, not just for convenience but in order to get the car out of the lane so that traffic doesn’t start backing up behind you.

Wait, what exactly is on the front end of the car that’s touching the ground? The front wheels are in the air, and it looks like the car is resting on the back wheels and the front fender. How does that work?

I don’t think it would be much of a problem for the nose to support some of the body weight. As long as the part that comes into contact with the ground is a solid piece of reinforced framework, then it should be fine.

What I’m puzzled about is the sliding. Apparently, two rollers are used to slide the car in sideways, but I can’t figure out where they’re positioned or exactly how they’d work. Maybe there’s some kind of central rollered jack?

Good concept but bad logic. I’m concerned about having a 2 ton hunk of metal do a balancing act while you’re not around. Would it take much to topple it over? Just get for guys behind it and push and it would easily flop over. It only took four guys to lift an old VW Beetle.

It is simple to see that you are passionate about your writing. Great job!
