Ferrari Millenio Concept by Marko Petrovic

27-year-old Serbian designer Marko Petrovic presented exclusive concept car. Ferrari Millenio, probably as his name suggests, is a futuristic sports car, using materials and technologies that we will most likely see in the automotive industry after tens of years. Conceptual Ferrari Millenio is powered by two electric motors that draw energy from the sun through solar panels or from the power supply through a wireless charger. Body and construction rely on the material "buckypaper", which is a thin layer of aggregate of carbon nanotubes, which are 50,000 times thinner than human hair. More importantly, this material is significantly lighter and stronger than steel or carbon fiber. 

Marko Petrovic describes his work as a mix of complex materials technology and design.  The car design started as a drawing and then goes to the 3d visualization. The concept Millenio is a two-seater cabriolet. The futuristic look is not only in the exterior but and in the interior. The model really looks exceptional and modernistic. We hope to see this car in production or at least a 1:1 scale model of it. But until then we can just look at the pictures and dream.

The car looks into the future, but carries in itself something of the past. Named after the French word for "sky", Ciel is quite large (with a length of 5174 mm) four-door and four-seater convertible. The rear doors open backwards and B-pillars reminiscent of the classic Lincoln Continental convertible by 1961.

Ciel is developed in the GM Design Center in North Hollywood as Nikki Smart has been a leading designer for the exterior, while Gael Cheeks is responsible for the interior. Wheelbase of 3175 mm provides sufficient space for all passengers. The prototype is a four-wheel drive and relies on the twin-turbo version of the 3.6-liter GM engine with direct injection. Added to this the car also have an electric motor using lithium-ion pack battery. When both motors are combined, Cadillac Ciel has a total power of 425 hp and torque of 583 Nm.
