The fact that cornering and parking is so difficult for many drivers has to say at least something about the underdeveloped agility and maneuverability of the modern vehicle. Solving this problem, the three-wheeler Crab concept car is composed in such a way that dramatically reinvents the assembly and the mechanics of the automobile of the future.
Primarily, the size of this pod-like subcompact gives it an adept nimbleness that can cope with chaotic traffic conditions, obscene parking circumstances and unpredictable terrain. It can react quickly and adjust unrestrictedly, providing the operator with a 360 degree view of his surroundings. One of the most clever features of Andrea Filogonio's design is the tiny balls that line the two front wheels of the vehicle. They allow the Crab concept car to move perpendicular to the roads so that even parallel parking is swift as a pinch.
