Geely Vision Starburst concept is a love letter to cosmos
As a presentation of its new design language, Chinese automaker Geely has unveiled the Vision Starburst concept car. The futuristic four-wheeler draws inspiration from "the stellar phenomena where brilliant nebulas and magnificent elements come together, merging, fusing and finally bursting into new stars." Sounds poetic, right? Sadly, it will not make its way to production but we might see some features on future cars.
'Expanding Cosmos philosophy drives the brand's future plans'
"The Expanding Cosmos philosophy serves as a constant inspiration for our designers to discover a new and holistic design language that satisfies our ever-expanding and increasingly diverse range of customers," said Guy Burgoyne, VP of Geely Design. "In search for this DNA in the new digital age, we have pushed the boundaries of technology and innovation."
It offers a floating-style center console and octagonal steering wheel
Geely Vision Starburst has a unique cabin with ambient lighting, sound, and atmosphere that change as per the vehicle's state. There is also a floating-style center console, an octagonal-shaped steering wheel, and different color lights to correspond to the gear settings. According to Geely, the whole vehicle is "capable of conveying vehicle and road information" to increase safety and bring a new sensory experience.
The car has illuminated wheel arches and frameless doors
The Geely Vision Starburst features a muscular hood, a large grille, a wide air dam, and an M-shaped lighting strip that serves as the headlight. It is flanked by frameless doors, sharp body lines, and designer wheels. The illuminated wheel arches change color depending on whether the car is in motion or parked. A wrap-around taillight with Y-shaped signature is available on the rear.
