The Shiny Car Concept From Jong Won Lee
The Car of Light from designer Jong Won Lee can be the coolest solar car concept that I have ever seen. Inspired by the effects of light on human senses and the shape of objects, the vehicle features a roof-mounted solar panel and a sun roof that allows for natural light during the day and artificial illumination after dark. The zero-emission concept is powered by electric motors and the entire design is informed by the sun. The interior and exterior of the vehicle are inspired by the rapping style of ancient Egypt’s mummy wrapping. This wrapping of the dead comes originally from the Sun God Ra, who took quite a bit of his/her design sensibilities from the daylight hitting the world. Then there’s the wave feel of the vehicle, taken from the kinetic wave line of a river surface. Kind of a smooth sailor through the powerfully lit streets.
