niels van roij: TVR artemis concept car

TVR artemis is a concept sports car designed by niels van roij, named after the greek goddess of the hunt, artemis. artemis’ lightweight body and windows are constructed from high-tech engineering plastics. down force is provided by an under hood spoiler system, which takes in air at the front spoiler aiding in the handling of the car. the system also directs air to cool the car’s four electro in-hub motors and the hydrogen fuel cells by which it is powered. the car’s power to weight ratio has been important in the design of the car. it is lightweight because no heavy engine or fluids are needed to power the vehicle, thus resulting in quick acceleration. one of the TVR’s characteristics are the slits in its body that hide the head and taillights which are illuminated by night through the use of LEDs.

  • Plain Ugly!

    az says:
  • It seems there’s no surer way of grabbing some attention than producing yet another dumb concept car. Copy a few vague lines of a manufacturer, add a few swirls and big wheels, arrow “insert future technology here”. The only trick missed here is a big logo on the front.

    Boring!!!

    Nick says:
  • i think its nice

    Tom says:
  • The tail lights have potential, but that’s it. The rest doesn’t work.

    Marc D. says:
  • Let it ripp!! then we talk. To smooth for RWD approfel or anny “I want to drive my car in the real world” test team for that matter
