Latest Chassis Design

With all of the excitement——and questions around the Future IndyCar Concept Announcement. We at IndyCar.com thought we’d enlist our users to have fun with the open design concept that the 2012 IndyCar chassis will endorse. For more information please visit the www.indycar.com/2012 page for interviews, car information and of course…the details on how you can design your own concept.

Here is the latest design from Italy and Daniele Sanfilippo (who has already sent us multiple cool designs). Take a look and let us know what you think. AND – remember, you can submit your designs to us. We’d love to see them.

Daniele had this to say about his designs:

In this proposal, I have not given the initial design provided by Dallara. I built this from scratch mistaken some proportion. To be my first 3D design I’m quite happy.

In this car I tried to create a connection between the cars of the late ’70s and what could be the future concepts for the utilization of materials. As you will see on the sides are missing the air intake vents. In fact there are! Are vertical slots that follow the car’s aerodynamic profile. The sides are designed in two blocks. The upper part tapers towards the tail, creating the effect of Coca Cola is already known in F1. The bottom, however, is developed on the other hand, creating the side of safety necessary to avoid “engaging” among the cars.

The rest is all fiction that probably will not make the car go fast, but it certainly makes it pleasant to behold.

Its great to see the designs pouring in from the fans.  Each artist so far has concept-ed different designs which is what the new concept is all about.  As many of the readers have noticed, inspiration for designs are coming from all types of racing vehicles; Formula 1, past IndyCars…as well as new ideas which will shape the future of IndyCar racing.  My next challenge for all of the contributers would be to consider the different wing packages which will be necessary for oval, road, street and short oval circuits.

Our next design comes from Tyler Tucker.  Here’s Tyler’s comments about his designs.

“This design is a mix of old and new.  The rear wing has the F1 look to it to where it is tall and skinny.  The side pods are more traditional aside from the winglets designed to create an extra bit of downforce.”
