eLink concept vehicle has won Michelin Design Challenge 2013 with its unique concept based on the theme “Half! Lightweight with Passion”. In the future, driving a car will become an expensive lifestyle due to the rising fuel costs, tolls and parking fees, especially in the city. Driving is not enjoyable anymore, it becomes less fun due to crowded street, there won’t enough parking spaces as well. People would look for alternative transportation, fun and eco friendly to travel long distance, and an electric SUV would become a nice reason to get out on the road. It’s a green way to travel without reducing the joy of driving.

In not so distant future, let’s say 2029, it seems that A.R.C race becomes prestigious competition among car makers. This time, INFINITE has come up with futuristic concept car of its own team called SYNAPTIQ. The Air.Rally.Circuit race uses a universal fuselage pod that integrates into 3 vehicle types, allowing you to witness a Formula-1 grand prix from LA to Las Vegas as the first part of the race. The second part of the race would be a desert race that requires an off-road buggy to the famous Grand Canyon, and the final part would be radical gymkhana style jet race that takes all contestants back to LA through virtual structures.
SYNAPTIQ is a future vision of INFINITE’s team where the driver and machine become one, it will dramatically enhance driver’s performance as well as passion for racing, a design that provokes anyone’s imagination.
