This is the BRB Evolution —a unique sports car concept, designed by 22-year-old British engineer Daniel Bailey, that folds itself in half lengthwise to fit into tight parking spots. The concept car would fold itself into half its length by jacking itself up on its nose and tucking its rear wheels beneath. Bailey claims he was inspired by the Lamborghini Murcielago and Peugeot 908, but given the car's appearance and Mr. Bailey's youthful 22 years, we suspect reefer, Mountain Dew and repeated playings of Transformers may have also been involved.
But the BRB Evolution concept is not only capable of fitting into tight spots with it's Dyson vacuum-like design, but it's also intended to be "green." The concept car's powered by electricity or hydrogen, in effect solving what Bailey considers to be the two main problems of the city of the future: pollution and overpopulation. And, before you think how much fun it would be to fold the car and unfold it again while sitting in the driver's seat, think again: no occupants are permitted while the BRB is doing its magic squeeze show.
Also, don't expect this concept car will hit the streets anytime soon, but we do hope this young man gets snapped up right quick by some company doing automotive design. We figure a piece in the Telegraph about his design concept probably won't hurt his chances. Also, our write-up, but we'd never toot our own horn. Unless it deserves tooting of course. [Telegraph UK]
