(http://assets.cgsociety.org/nvart/415135_1277799878/1024bound)The SLIPSTREAM was inspired by Syd Mead's Blade Runner Spinner Vehicle and F1's Open Wheel racecars.

With F1 inspired aerodynamic, air channeling wings; the subsequent laminar airflow helps the vehicle Slipstream through the air.

The "flying" cockpit is suspended on catamaran type, raised framing struts which attach above the wheel assemblies at the Central Pivots and rear wheel frames.

Dual front shock absorbers add strength and stability to the front swingarm and steering Knuckle for aggressive driving practices.

The powerplant consists of a Hydrogen-Fueled Electric Generator powering four, 100hp in-wheel electric motors.
