Here's a quick translation from the article in dutch:
"the dutch designer Steven Van Der Veen has reached for the 3'th consecutive time, the finale of the Michelin Challenge Design.
For this event, designers are being invited to make an innovative car-concept. The theme this time was Germany.
Just like always, the drawings of the finalists will be showed at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. From a few designs there is also a conceptmodel, like this year, the one from Steven VDV. He built the scale model of wood.
He designed a 3.15m short twoseater (Audi A1) for home-work traffic that still looks robust and sporty.
Steven fitted a 1.8T engine in the back to have a low nose with an optimal crumplezone.
The interior has a crisp design, just like the exterior and the wide and high central console make part of the chassis and is, above all that, an airvent for the engine."
Cool little concept if you ask me:)
