Truck named Innotruck created by the legendary bully from automotive design Luigi Colani.
The Innotruck project was aimed at rethinking the design of long-range trucks. His vision of a “tractor of the future” Luigi Colani designed in 2012 with the support of Siemens: that is why its name emblazoned on the sides of the futuristic machine. As for the technical part of the answer scientists from the Technical University of Munich.
However, as it often happened, the idea of Colani and his associates were too radical for his time, and to the pipelined stages of the development of the project Innotruck never came. It was built only two demonstration instance of its kind show car, and one of them is now for sale.
The main feature of the design of “Innotrac” can be called, apparently, the division of the cockpit “pilot” and actually the traction “unit”. The truck driver is housed in a glass cubicle resembling the cockpit of a fighter, but the controls have no direct contact with chassis components – commands are passed through the wires.
In motion Innotruck is driven by electric motors, the energy which produces diesel engine. In General, the objective of the prototype was to minimize both the impact on the environment and energy consumption. For this project, and was one of the most famous apologists of the biodesign Luigi Colani, who painted exotic truck for a streamlined appearance.
One of the two existing instances Innotruck (the second, according to rumors, belongs to the family of the recently deceased colony) for sale on the site JamesEdition – kind of the premium marketplace. The price of the truck not called: the sellers promise to announce it only on specific request.
