Ah, yes, Jon Radbrink's green concept car "Nuaero." Supersweet design concept, and no, I don't care how impractical it might be to drive a glazed ceramic glass car! It's a design concept, dang it! It has no motor! Sheesh! 8^}

The "Nuaero" is one of 10 very futuristic-looking "green concept cars" featured in a wired.com gallery at:

I just realized: "Radbrink"!

Radical brinkmanship? On the brink of rad? What a cool name, especially for a cutting-edge** designer, eh?

**(--as in, if you're a pedestrian, don't get hit by a Nuaero--could be the high-powered equivalent of getting nailed by a vertical guillotine, with those 90 degree off-horizontal, knife-edge fenders! The Geico gecko will be unable to help you, then... 8^})

Looks more like a version of the Batmobile to me...still, very cool.

Katie--

OK, OK, it's a "Blade Runner" Batmobile. Are you happy? ;-)

The Lexus LF-Ch concept: As a luxury compact, the Lexus LF-Ch delivers a premium experience in a nimble form that’s perfect for negotiating urban environments. The latest generation of the Lexus Hybrid Drive – the world’s most proven gasoline-electric hybrid power train – features a switch that allows the driver to select between four drive modes. Normal, Eco and EV are joined by a Sport setting, offering owners a range of driving experiences from soothing to spirited. The exterior features an aggressive grille, wide front bumper and air dam that give the LF-Ch a powerful personality, reinforced by a commanding stance, broad and high shoulders, and an arching roofline that flows into the rear spoiler. Inside, Lexus designers created an elegant, contemporary and functional cabin trimmed in metal and leather to create a luxuriously handcrafted environment.
