“This is a truly exciting opportunity to have this concept car on display at the Tulsa Auto Show,” Bill Knight, president of Knight Auto Group, said. “This is a one-of-a-kind exhibit and we are proud to have it as part of our show.”
The concept car was designed by independent artist Kip Kubisz. An ultralight vehicle design that he imagines to use aerodynamics and an electromagnetic power train and suspension, the design is intended to be powered by electricity through a bank of magnets in the inner wheel well and on the rim. The car is also designed for air to flow through the body and channel to the back end providing downforce while also decreasing drag.
“I am extremely honored and excited to be the person who designed the first full-size concept car model produced and exhibited by an auto show,” Kubisz said. “My design incorporates many of today’s technologies along with some conceptual ideas to create my vision of a future racing platform, and I look forward to being able to show it off at the Tulsa Auto Show.”
The concept car design began as part of a contest announced last year. Following the Tulsa Auto Show, the concept car is expected to be displayed at auto shows throughout the country.
