    More information...

    - Highly advanced body structure utilizes a 3D lattice, mono-formed frame.
    - All major body parts, including interior components, are essentially "grown" into a single part lattice structure.
    - Uses compressed air via a highly efficient Pneumatic Drive System (PDS). Its 10,000 psi composite air storage tank has ample capacity for a 1000 mile range.
    - A flexible polymer skin optimizes aerodynamics and functions as an ultra-lightweight alternative to conventional body panels and glass.
    - All-In-One (AIO) wheel system, combining rotary actuator propulsion, steering and suspension functions.
    - A drive by wireless system decreases the mass of electrical components.
    - Vehicle to vehicle communication (V2V) promotes active safety.

    I hope cars never look like that, certainly an interesting idea though. I like those wheels....

    It's just a Design Challenge entry, guys -- a drawing. It's not ever going to be a real car, not even a concept.

    Will I be able to put up a windmill in my backyard that compresses air so I can fuel up for free?

    Bump. I can see the Ciel's nose on this thing. Interesting that they've actually used design elements from it on a closer-to-real car.
