The Renault Laguna concept which the French company rolled
out at the 1990 Paris Motor Show was a dramatic and futuristic
sports car styled by an up and coming designer, Jean-Pierre
Ploue, who would later go on to become the design director at
The Renault Laguna concept has nothing in common with the rather
run of the mill production Renault Laguna which would appear
shortly after. Instead it was intended to be an attention grabbing
dream car which would inject some excitement into the company.
Ka-22 Vintokryl "Hoop" Helicopter
The Kamov Ka-22, which went by the Nato reporting name "Hoop",
was an experimental heavy-lift helicopter developed by the Soviet
union in the 50's and '60s. The aircraft's nickname was the
Vintokryl, or "screw wing". It was designed to offer the same
vertical take-off and landing capabilities as a helicopter,
combined with the superior speed and range of a fixed-wing aircraft.
The Kamov Ka-22 helicopter was designed by Valdimir Barshevsky.
He drew up plans in the early 1950s for an unusual helicopter/airplane
combination, and by 1954 the Soviet military requested three
prototypes of the kA-22. Unfortunatelydue to lengthy delays
in the project, by 1956 the request had been reduced to just
a single aircraft, and this didn't take to the air until 1959.
The Jeep Chief concept was a concept vehicle developed by
Jeep for the 2015 Easter Jeep Safari. The concept was one of
seven special Jeep's the company created for the event, each
one celebrating a different Jeep tradition or model. The Jeep
Chief Concept was designed as a tribute to the classic 1970s
full-size Jeep Cherokee.
Based on a modern Jeep Wrangler, the Jeep Chief concept features
retro-inspired bodywork, as well as a mild custom look influenced
by the west coast surfer lifestyle. Custom exterior design cues
include a chopped roof, Ocean Blue paintwork with complimenting
white roof and pinstripe, a razor grille and halogen headlights,
chrome bumpers and '70s style slotted mag wheels. The concept
is also fitted with a 2-inch lift kit, Fox shocks, front and
rear Dana 44 axles and a cold air intake. Continue
