RCA ConceptThe Royal College of Art has revealed several auto designs that show off cutting-edge concept with an elegant and rather sporty look that we love in a supercar. These concepts have efficient electric engines and are built with ultra-lightweight materials. These RCA 2008 concept cars are beautiful and will blow anyone away.

These concept cars build upon the RCA’s world-renowned vehicle design program, which has produced many exceptional designers over its 40 years of existence. Now that nearly every major auto manufacturer has announced plans for an energy-efficient automobile, we find it truly exciting to chart the territory that future forays in automobile design may take.

Pierre Sabas’ Airflow concept encases an electric engine and suspension within an exterior constructed entirely of glass, while Jon Radbrink’s Nuaero car integrates sophisticated aerodynamic principles such as airfoils, a venturi tunnel, and a catamaran-esque underbody to maximize its efficiency.

Sergio Loureiro Da Silva’s rocket-red Phoenix car pairs beautiful aerodynamic curves with a system that regenerates lost energy through movement, and Arturo Peralta Nogueras’ futuristic vehicle runs on algae and features an evolving solid hologram technology to adapt to its environment, passengers, and scenarios.
