Road Yacht Concept by Michael van Vuuren
Michael van Vuuren designed the Road Yacht for an international design competition. The main idea was to create a car for the Russian market. van Vuuren didn't want to design another SUV style car for Russia, so he decided to design a car that was over the top. It symbolizes the huge gap between Russia’s poor people and its super rich oligarchs. The main compartment is above the rest of the car to show that the passengers are superior to every one else.
van Vuuren inspiration were the yachts of the super rich, the Pope Mobile and Lady Penelope's car the Thunderbird FAB 1 Concept from the 2004 film.
