'The Beast' Concept Floats Above the Ground to Achieve Higher Speeds

Motorcycles can move faster than cars because they can house comparable engines while only two wheels make contact with the ground, reducing the overall amount of friction; the Beast concept is a vehicle that takes that idea to the extreme. The concept vehicle looks something like a motorcycle, but it uses a giant fan to float above the ground, removing ground friction entirely.

The Beast concept is a single-pilot compact vehicle along the lines of a hovercraft but with speed as a priority. The design's aggressive lines and forward-leaning stance make it clear that the machine tears across flats with velocity. Steering is an issue for a vehicle that doesn't make contact with the ground, and the Beast concept solves that issue by incorporating a fin system underneath it.
