TOSA SUPERCAR (1st place win) & lmp RACECAR for GrabCad competition.
GrabCAD, working with the 500 Group, had a competition closing April 22nd 2012 to design a body for a supercar and LMP racecar on the same chassis which they provided CAD data on. My submissions were called the Tosa and Tosa LMP. I received a first place win for the Tosa street/supercar. For the Tosa I took inspiration from classic sports car design and given muscular form to the fenders, shoulders and enhanced areas like around the louvers. For the Tosa LMP I’ve retained some of the character of the Tosa street car, but had some fun with the unique aero attributes found in LMP cars. I applied functional aspects to the design like flatter sides, longer rear overhang, almost non-existent simple taillights, and incorporated plenty of cooling.
