Today's treat is a project done by a 20-year old Automotive Design Student. With his passion for cars since he was 4 years old, we are surely in for a ride! Mammoth-P71 is inspired by a combination of the Mammoth animal and a jet fighter. Fasten your seatbelts and check out our Mammoth-P71 feature!

The project is done for a private company called WacoMotors. I started to work with them after I won 2nd prize on Local Motors with LM Track Fighter, and because it was something very similar, a car able to make a happy driver, fun to drive, and has a huge amount of power, etc.

The P-71 is one of my best concepts that I have done so far, and I can say I am proud of how it looks, I am using almost all the time same recipe: sharp lines, aggressiveness and a lot of enthusiasm while I am working. I finished my proposal in a very short time, about 1 week, then we tried to fix all things together with the Mammoth team. Mammoth-P71, is the name given by the Mammoth team, and is inspired by the Mammoth animal (strength/heavy/force) and a jet fighter (speed, agility).

I had the base from the competition that I have joined, where I have done a lot of documentation, found inspiration in a lot of things. Then the team gave me a basic layout and it was very easy for me to progress very quick with the design. After a few sleepless nights, the results were quite great, we were all satisfied about the project.

Now the project is going to another level, WacoMotors has done some major changes and I want to see the car released, will be a nice feeling to know that I took part to design their base project. I have used 3DS Max, Vray and Photoshop as main softwares.

Car design is everything for me now, and I am working hard to be a great designer.
