View Full Version : Ultra-Luxury Convertible Design Contest

08-26-2005, 05:17 AM
Cars like the Rolls Royce 100EX and Bentley Drophead have rekindled the spirit of bespoke grand touring cars from the automobile's golden days--cars like the Mercedes-Benz 540K, Bugatti Type 57C, Deusenberg SJ, and Delahaye 135 M Figoni et Falaschi Cabriolet, to name a few. Design a modern-day ultra-luxury convertible that captures the spirit of these grand old cars, while meeting their goal of providing the most technologically-advanced, luxurious, drop-dead gorgeous (and even flamboyant) driving machine in the world. Any brand--even your own--must be as extravagant and elegant as possible. The rest is up to you.<p><IMG SRC="http://www.autosrapidos.com/superautos/r/rollsroyce-100ex01.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://car-reviews.automobile.com/images/cars/ArtImages/34125/alt12.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://images.google.ie/images?q=tbn:hM_dRDP2PJsJ:www.eurasia85.be/test/nieuweversiefotoalbum/duesenberg%2520sj%2520speedster%25201933.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><br><B>Contest will close on Friday the 9th of September.</B><p>Good Luck!

Wow Waleed, looks stunning. The shapes, I love the windshield and the front bumper. The rear fender is very awesome as well. How much HP in this beast? 1002?!

09-03-2005, 09:09 AM
well i didnt think about the horsepower but this thing should have atleast a naturally aspirated V16. thanks.

09-06-2005, 11:14 AM
Well, here's my hat in the ring with the new Lotus Emma.<br>I'm thinking RWD, V-8 (option of a V-8 desiel) with, say around 450hp.<br>Oh, and it's "fair-weather" only, no roof. Enjoy. <p><IMG SRC="http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2004-3/687350/EMMA.jpg" BORDER="0">

09-06-2005, 11:55 AM
it looks kinda like a TVR, but its awesome. i love it. and what's up with the name? Emma?

09-06-2005, 02:04 PM
it looks awesome but i don't think it really fits the contest prompt quite well.

09-06-2005, 06:02 PM

09-08-2005, 03:50 AM

09-08-2005, 04:12 PM

09-08-2005, 04:41 PM
I do like. Very much so.

09-08-2005, 07:23 PM
well. it wasn't too mundane. it was... this contest is supposed to be a luxury convertible, not a sports convertible...

09-09-2005, 01:19 AM
okay, my cadillac super luxo barge. it's a derivative off my cadillac super luxo sedan from one of our first contests, if you guys remember it. anyway, this one has some details, like the led headlamps, chrome reaching from the grille to the side and wrapping to the back, also accenting the rearview mirrors. it's got a modernized streamlined fender look to it. anyway, enjoy :D i'm not too particularly happy with it but, it's late. haha.<p><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v402/spamthechan/img011copy.jpg" BORDER="0"><BR><BR>

09-09-2005, 12:53 PM
haha no axis that's just what it is <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>i'd call it the ULC or something. Ultimate Luxury Convertible. since my sedan was the ULS. Ultimate Luxury Sedan. but you guys should have been able to figure that one out :D

09-09-2005, 05:04 PM
Well here's another, a Bugatti Royal with a V-16. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> <br><IMG SRC="http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2004-3/687350/BUGRoyal.jpg" BORDER="0">

09-09-2005, 05:57 PM
haha you seem like you're just belting out these designs like nothing. you know, you're gonna have to choose just one :)<p>this looks like a really large, really fast two seater. as opposed to a four seater luxo barge. but it still looks hella nice.

09-09-2005, 07:22 PM
wow, great entries from everyone so far <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/icondrool.gif" BORDER="0"> i guess it's too late to enter, i was thinking about entering the shannon series 3 that i'm working on, but i'm nowhere near being finished yet, and it's about $100,000 underpriced anyway <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/bangin.gif" BORDER="0">
