Phoenix - concept car

Winner of the Michelin Design Competition 2009 and displayed at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), Detroit.

Inspired by both the American Muscle cars and the Americans favourite vehicle; The Pick-up Truck, the PHOENIX is a 2 seat concept car, that is both agile and tough. A mid-ship engine placed right behind the cabin and four-wheel-drive provides balance, grip and a low centre of gravity. The strong stance is complemented by the relaxed character of the car’s main use.
Project outcome was a collaboration with Niels Iversen.
