Renault's Reinastella: A Flying Saucer Tale from 2328

Futuristic RIDES - In the realm of extraterrestrial fascination, flying saucers often spark thoughts of encounters with aliens and UFO mysteries. However, not all saucers are bound for outer space; some find their origins right here on Earth, crafted by human ingenuity. This unlikely association between terrestrial design and celestial speculation is evident in various automotive creations, challenging the conventional narrative of unidentified flying objects.

In the automotive world, renowned designers like Alex Tremulis ventured into uncharted territory, conceptualizing flying saucer designs. This trend extended beyond the drafting board, with manufacturers materializing these imaginative ideas into real, tangible forms. Examples include the 1953 Alfa Romeo 1900 C52 Disco Volante, the futuristic 1958 Ford X-2000, the gyroscopic wonder of 1967 Gyro-X, and the contemporary 2016 Alfa Romeo Disco Volante Spyder, each defying expectations.

Yet, amidst these earthly endeavors, there exists an intriguing anomaly—a flying saucer not confined on wheels. Renault, the famed French automotive manufacturer, ventured into uncharted skies in the early 1990s. Known for its conceptual prowess, Renault's partnership with Euro Disney in 1992 led to the creation of a flying saucer projecting into the distant future, the Renault Reinastella, named after a luxurious Renault classic model from early of the 1930s.

Crafted with avant-garde biomechanics and coated in the innovative synthetic material dermotylene, the Reinastella was envisioned as more than a mere vehicle. Propelled by a bio-organic engine fueled by 'plasmelf' fluid, it transcended conventional transportation, almost resembling a living organism. Operating 15 cm above the ground at 50 kph or soaring at 150 m and 300 kph, the Reinastella adapted its architecture for optimal aerodynamics during flight.

Silently transporting five passengers through voice commands, this airborne marvel represented the epitome of luxury in futuristic travel. Access to its passenger compartment is from below through an open hatch, not from above, as the bubble remains closed.

Two examples were constructed and showcased on telescopic masts during Renault's partnership with Disneyland Paris. After the event, these futuristic saucers joined the Renault Classic Collection, destined to await their sale - scheduled a whopping 305 years into the future.😮
While the Renault Reinastella may not soar through the skies, it invites us to envision a future where innovation defies the limits of logic and propels us into uncharted realms. (Picture from: Auto-Moto)
Today, the Reinastella may be considered an 'Identified Flying Object' or IFO, as it remains grounded. Despite its earthly tethering, it serves as a captivating decorative testament to Renault's imaginative prowess. A glimpse into a future more than a century away, this 'IFO' prompts us to keep dreaming, pushing boundaries, and contemplating the unimaginable.
And it's had been proven by the automaker nearly three decades later, in 2022, it collaborates with TheArsenale had succeded to fly the Air4 prototype, in celebrating the 60th anniversary of its legendary Renault 4L model.😄 *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | LAUTOMOBILEANCIENNE | AUTO-MOTO | CLASSICDRIVER | CONCEPTCARZ | THRILLIST | SECRET-CLASSIC | PROEKTOR ]

ARTWork In order to commemorate its 60th anniversary, Automobili-Lamborghini S.p.A. collaborated with Japan's most influential contemporary artist, IKEUCHI with goal to create an artistic platform through its supercar productions, as the result here's the one-and-only Lamborghini Huracán STO Time Chaser_111100 and Time Gazer artworks. While related to its unusual name, actually 111100 is the binary code for the number 60 as in recognition of the Italian raging bull supercar maker's anniversary in this year of 2023.
The Lamborghini Huracán STO Time Chaser_111100 is a special art piece styled by IKEUCHI a Japanese designer in celebration of Lambo’s 60th anniversary. (Picture from: id.Motor1)
It's in accordance with the motto of its 60th anniversary, namely "The future began in 1963," Automobili-Lamborghini together with its worldwide network consisted of 180 dealers in 53 different countries, have decided to undertake a cross-sectional project, in which the differ market will be working with internationally renowned artists to commemorate its 60th anniversary.
For then it was referred as the "Chasing the Future" project was intended to create an artistic platform in which the Italian raging bull supercar maker company intended to explore in all its forms, the Lamborghini's core values that have always distinguished in the past, present, and also as a reference for the future. This first collaboration in Japan with IKEUCHI, as the results had presented in Tokyo in Februari 2023 then.
While related to its unusual name, actually 111100 is the binary code for the number 60 as in recognition of the Italian raging bull supercar maker's anniversary in this year of 2023. (Picture from: TopGear)
Since emerging on the art scene as an artist in the early 2010s, IKEUCHI's unparalleled talent has quickly captured the world's attention and led to collaborations with world-renowned brands and influential artists. And in his collaborative work with Lamborghini, IKEUCHI seems inspired by cyberpunk and robot realms, where he combines plastic models with industrial product components to create visions of the future complete with conventional functions.
The Lamborghini Huracán STO Time Chaser_111100 was built by combining original parts from Lamborghini’s previous anniversary editions including the Countach 25th Anniversary, the Diablo SE30, Murciélago 40th and Aventador LP 720-4 50th. (Picture from: TopGear)
IKEUCHI further said that the Time Gazer and Time Chaser were made by combining original parts taken from the past anniversary Lamborghini models such as the Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary, Lamborghini Diablo SE30, Lamborghini Murcielago 40th Anniversary, and Lamborghini Aventador LP-720-4 50th Anniversary.
IKEUCHI takes inspiration from cyberpunk and robot anime, hence the distinctive styling of this module that sits atop the V10. (Picture from: TopGear)
By combining these parts and other elements, IKEUCHI interprets the Huracán STO in his signature futuristic cyber-industrial style. And all of these were meant to be a celebration of marque's history from the past with the aim of living longer in the future as well, and hopes to Lamborghini as the owners and many others would enjoyed this collaboration result as an artwork to commemorate the next chapter of such this ever-evolving brand.
If IKEUCHI leaving the STO drivetrain untouched, that means a lightweight body (1,339 kg, about 43 kg less than the regular Huracán) packing a 5.2-liter V10 of 631 bhp/416 lb.ft and plenty of downforce. (Picture from: TopGear)
It seems that these projects maximally explore the common themes shared by Lamborghini and IKEUCHI, namely the concepts of "time" and "eternity": as we can see on the Time Gazer that is made using genuine Lamborghini parts and is a large-scale artwork which is meant to encapsulate IKEUCHI's vision of the past, present and future through the lens of Lamborghini's evolution.
The Time Gazer was a sort of simulator model to present IKEUCHI's vision of "past, present and future through the lens of Lamborghini's evolution". (Picture from: TopGear)
Meanwhile, the Lamborghini Huracán STO Time Chaser_111100 is the one-and-only creation that brilliantly expresses the theme of IKEUCHI cybernetics and Lamborghini's 60-year history which includes shared values to always be at the forefront. time and breaking the rules of the past through creative and authentic expression. Despite this, Lamborghini's influence legacy on this limited edition work is marked by clear references to the launch colors of the previous anniversary models and by using the binary code of 111100 for the number 60 as the naming itself imprinted on the car's door bones.
The Time Gazer was built by using various original Lamborghini parts, like intakes, engine cover, switchgear, a wheel and so on.. (Picture from: TopGear)
Davide Sfrecola, Head of Japan Automobili-Lamborghini, explained that they are very pleased to capture such a valuable collaboration with IKEUCHI that represents the future of Japan. As you can see, it was a spectacular creation made up of broken motherboards, plastic and electrical wires intricately shaped to create a masterpiece of cyberpunk apocalyptic aesthetic.
According to the Chairman and CEO of Automobili-Lamborghini, Stephan Winkelmann, that Lamborghini is very proud to be able to present this artwork together with IKEUCHI in this unforgettable 60th Anniversary. The Lamborghini Huracán STO Time Chaser_111100 truly blends tradition and innovation, past and future while perfectly embodying on the Lamborghini's 60th Anniversary milestone, and promised to continue to grow as a bold and unconventional brand, never ceasing to challenge itself.

Paolo Martin's unique proposal for Bugatti EB110

Radical Concept Apparently gloomy days have also been experienced by a well-known automotive company like Bugatti. In the 1960s, the Molsheim-based company had declared bankrupt and should ceased production for a long time before revived back in the 1980s. The idea of Bugatti’s revival was initially proposed by none other than Ferruccio Lamborghini together with ex-Lamborghini engineer and designer Paolo Stanzani to Romano Artioli.
The most radical proposed design concept for the Bugatti EB110 called Bugatti 110 PM1 by Paolo Martin in 1989. (Picture from: SportscarDigest)
This happened when Ferruccio wanted to start another project after selling his raging-bull logoed company in 1981. At that time Romano Artioli was known widely as a Bugatti collector, turn out also had a personal ambition to establish a company worthy of Ettore Bugatti’s legacy, Bugatti macaron, and the horseshoe grille. And made the initial idea to estabilish a new brand changed into a wildly ambitious plan to revive one of the all-time great auto marques.
The wooden maquette of the Bugatti 110 PM1 posed along with its creator Paolo Martin at the Turin Auto Show 1991. (Picture from: Carstbatnevermadeitetc)
Disagreement with Artioli’s ambition to go huge from the very start, then prompted Ferruccio Lamborghini retreated. Following the dispute, Artioli and Stanzani soon started working on a draft to acquire the Bugatti brand. After successfully acquiring the brand, they teamed up with like-minded enthusiast, automotive historian Jean-Marc Borel founded a holding company called Bugatti International in Luxembourg in 1987.
The Bugatti 110 PM1 featured with a panoramic windshield and a floating rear wing integrated within the diagonal character line starting behind the front wheels. (Picture from: AllCarIndex)
Borel was managing the holding, while Ettore’s youngest son Michel Bugatti was among the board of directors. Romano Artioli himself led the Bugatti Automobili S.p.A. while 35% of the Bugatti International holding was held by Tecnostile, a highly regarded independent engineering company employing former Lamborghini personnel. In short to strategically place Bugatti at the center of the supercar industry, the company then established a modern production facility in Campogalliano, the outskirts of Modena.
It is interesting that in the Paolo Martin's design appears to reference the Luigi Colani’s extraordinary Lamborghini Miura Le Mans Concept of 1970. (Picture from: SportscarDigest)
In early days of this newly resurrected auto brand the man in charges leading the project was Paolo Stanzani together with Tecnostile, envisioning the underpinnings of the car. Both Artioli, Stanzani, and the principal Tecnostile team of Achille Bevini, Tiziano Benedetti, and Oliviero Pedrazzi agreed that the car had to go beyond the well-established concept boundaries of the time, namely the mid-engined V12 supercar. Still, the team spoke from experience, as they developed the chassis and the engine of the Lamborghini Miura.
The Bugatti 110 PM1's design revolved around aerodynamic efficiency, but it proved to be too far-out and definitely not elegant enough to be considered for production. (Picture from: SportscarDigest)
In the car design later known as the forerunner of the Bugatti EB110, apart from involving its own designer team, the company also invited several well-known designers at the time such as Giorgietto Giugiaro, Paolo Martin, Marcello Gandini, and Nuccio Bertone to create the looks of the upcoming car. A quartet of accomplished designers returned their vision for the future Bugatti and each was special in its own right.
The Bugatti 110 PM1 concept sat on display as a wooden maquette at the  the 65th Turin International Motor Show in 1991. (Picture from: Bestinsketch.it)
After some time ago we had discussed Giorgietto Giugiaro' designed car called the Bugatti ID90 Concept. Well, now we will discuss about the most radical proposal came from Paolo Martin (a former Pininfarina designer) who created a unique prototype called the Bugatti 110 PM1 in the 1989.
The Bugatti 110 PM1 concept shown as a model of sports car in 1: 1 scale and made entirely of wood. A structure whose shape exceeds the stylistic value. (Picture from: SportscarDigest)
The car appears in such an unusual shape with a panoramic windshield and a floating rear wing integrated within the diagonal character line starting behind the front wheels. Meanwhile, Bugatti 110 PM1 was a single seater sports car controlled by a joystick and “paddles” rather than a steering wheel. It is interesting that in the Paolo Martin's design appears to reference the Luigi Colani’s extraordinary Lamborghini Miura Le Mans Concept of 1970.
The Bugatti 110 PM1 concept has a single-seater cabin consists of a capsule in which the steering wheel is replaced by two handwheels located on the arm rests, for a more ergonomic ride. (Picture from: Carstbatnevermadeitetc)
The designer said that the philosophy of the project was essentially to create two distinct areas, that of traction and strength tied to earth and that of the living cell with aerial shape and ideally detached from the body. Inside its capsule cabin consists only one-seater in which the steering wheel is replaced by two handwheels located on the arm rests, for a more ergonomic ride. For safety, the driver has a four-point anchor belt that incorporates an abdominal airbag.

Although they had made in a 1:4 scale model but this project reportedly did not run smoothly, due to the design proved to be too far-out and definitely not elegant enough to be considered for production and later the project was cancelled.😩
The Bugatti 110 PM1 concept in any case a reality resolved in a traditional way and presented so simply, to reawaken that intimate sense of taste and charm that always accompanies a valid work for a long time. (Picture from: SportscarDigest)
Furthermore, in 1991 this project had back on the track after Joshiro Kitami, a Japanese businessman was interested in it and wanted to revived the Ford Cobra's brand in which he had investments. Even in that time the designer had executed its polystyrene model to start engineering, but unfortunately this operation back to fail due to financial problems.😭
The Bugatti PM1 Concept known as a single-seater supercar made entirely of wood while sat on display at the National Automobile Museum (Il Museo Nazionale dell’Automobile) in early year of 2016. (Picture from: la Repubblica)
It made the designer then switched to build a 1:1 scale model out of wood. Finally, the wooden maquette of Bugatti 110 PM1 (only bodywork) finished and shown to the public for the first time at the  the 65th Turin International Motor Show in 1991.
Observed in its unique technical aspects or appreciated simply as an "unusual mobile" car, the PM1 is in any case a reality resolved in a traditional way and presented so simply, to reawaken that intimate sense of taste and charm that always accompanies a valid work for a long time. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | BESTINSKETCH.IT | SPORTSCARDIGEST ]

Here they are 2 unique Dragon Ball motorcycles brought into real world by Bel & Bel

So CUTES For many people it may be agreed that childhood was one of the happiest phases in life that everyone should have. And the most memorable memories that carry over to adulthood are one of them obtained from animated films. One of the animated films most watched by children (especially those whose childhood was in the mid of 1980s to the 1990s) around the world is the 'Dragon Ball' cartoon series based on the Akira Toriyama's best seller comic under same titled.
The replica of the Bulma's 'Capsule 9' (left) posed along with the 'Lunch' one wheeled motorbikes (right) built by Bel & Bel. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/3pvuaLu)
Maybe you still remember one episode of the 'Dragon Ball' cartoon series which tells of the existence of a sophisticated object called the Hoi Poi Capsule, a container developed by Capsule Corp and is used to store vehicles and other products developed by the company. And one of the capsules called Capsule 9, contains the future motorcycle that Bulma rode when she went to meet Goku.
The Bulma's Capsule 9 motorbike featured with specially made fairing and acrylic dome. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/3dh8wbl)
The unique shape of a motorbike maybe awakens your imagination and dream to be able to own and ride it in the real world. In the near future your dream might be come true, because reportedly there is a studio and workshop based in Barcelona, Spain named Bel & Bel developed the functional prototype of the Bulma's unique-shaped motorcycle.
The Bulma's Capsule 9 motorbike an electric-powered (hub type) ones by using an electric motor placed on the rear wheel even though it still looks like has double (fake) exhausts. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/3dh8wbl)
Not only that, previously the Barcelona-based studio and workshop had also made the other motorcycle prototype of the Dragon Balls cartoon series known as Lunch motorbike, which is a unique one-wheeled motorcycle with a cursory appearance like a sea horse. In the Dragon Ball cartoon series, you can see that this single-wheeled motorcycle is also driven by Bulma.
The Bulma's Lunch one wheeled motorbike (left) posed along with the Zero Scooter (right). (Picture from: http://bit.ly/3dh8wbl)
Through its Instagram page, Bel & Bel has published some pictures of the exclusive motorbikes that (might be) we want to have all. There is a significant difference, if in the Dragon Ball cartoon series, the motorbike uses a conventional engine and has fierce sound when it is in action, but in the Bel & Bel creation made as an electric-powered (hub type) ones by using an electric motor placed on the rear wheel even though it still looks like has double (fake) exhausts.
The Bulma's Lunch one wheeled motorbike with a cursory appearance like a sea horse. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/3dh8wbl)
Then this Bulma motorcycle chassis is specially made in size, of course, not for big people, because it is adjusted to the posture of Bulma and Goku (roughly the size of children around 7-8 years old). So tiny and cutie. This is a handmade and unique motorcycle. This can be seen also in the details such as the fairing which was made specifically for this vehicle or the acrylic dome.

Furthermore, the motorbikes maker explained that the electric-powered motorcycle has three speeds and also an integrated mapping system with a dragon ball radar like that of the one in the cartoon series. Maybe by using this system, we able to be look for those magic balls in our world!😉 
The Bel & Bel also said that they made the two replicas of the Dragon Ball cartoon series motorbikes, because they watched and like the series since childhood and wanted to remake the vehicle as Fan Art. Reportedly, they are currently trying to get an official license from Toei-Animation, the animation studio that made the Dragon Ball cartoon series.
Furthermore, they believed that the motorbikes had a big influence on the network and made them think of making it in limited numbers for the fans of the cartoon series only. So they don't know whether this will come true and how much it will cost, and it all depends on the answer to their proposal to Toei-Animation.🙏
Off course, We all know it is not easy to make these motorcycles into reality, but only by knowing that the idea has come up, and for us it is already fun to have told and seen the unique vehicles in the Akira Toriyama's works almost coming true or at least not far from reality.😏
That's it, and if the article above is still considered inadequate or inaccurate, or if you have additional information related to these 2 replicas of the Dragon Ball motorbike, please don't hesitate to let us know via the comments column below this article.

Kept spur your adrenaline on the power of the two-wheeled monster and stay alive with true safety riding. May God will forgive Your sins and so does the cops...... *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | BEL&BEL | MOTORPASIONMOTO | BIOBIOCHILE | IMOTORBIKE | TECH-BLOGS | RIDEAPART ]
