It's concepts like the Palm Valley Buggy that suggest how poor man's modern vehicles are at tackling untamed landscapes around the world. Designed particularly to traverse the Australian Outback, this unique automobile was developed with strong inspiration and influence from nature's own creatures.

Looking to the lizard, Ali Doostdar and Mehdi Alamdari and dreamed up a flexible frame that's lightweight and breezy, taking little wind resistance and facilitating careful climbs over mounds of sand. The dune buggy would be built with electrical motors that supply power around each of the four wheels, made possible by a battery that's well concealed in the sturdy structure. Three people can comfortably ride the Palm Valley Buggy, getting unobstructed views of the expansive desert around them.
