We’ve looked at a lot of design-semantic switches where we imagine one company designing a product out of their usual catalog (but with their design style)… cases in point, a lot of PDF Haus’s work.
Today we look at a design-language-fusion, if you will. Created by rendering firm NeoMam Studios, this series looks at cars that are a result of two companies coming together to fuse their styles. You’ve got a BMW + Lamborghini mashup right above that combines the Italian supercar manufacturer’s edgy style and signature yellow body-color with BMW’s signature kidney grille. At the end of the day, the car’s still a stunner!
Scroll down below and you’ll see, in order, a Bentley + Ferrari mashup that combines British class ant Italian fervor and passion. Followed by a Nissan + Porsche harmony that would truly be a feat of engineering. Next, we have a Volkswagen + Ford mashup that combines the strategic sensibility found in both companies. Following that is a strange combination of David and Goliath, Smart and Range Rover. This alliance gives smart-cars their much-needed rugged makeover, allowing them to look less puny and more dominating on the asphalt. Lastly, and a personal favorite is the combination of two classic American Muscle brands, Dodge and Chevrolet. Looking like a Charger and a Camaro had a beautiful love-child, the car is quite literally the ultimate mash-up automobile!

Designed with a little biomimicry in mind, the Ifinity Valtra from vehicle takes inspiration from mother nature’s most famous worker, the ant. Using the insect’s segmented body as a starting point, the design is focused on adaptability in order to perform a variety of different tasks.
Previously, a myriad of task-specific vehicles would be required for everything from plowing to hauling. By using a modular system of functional attachments, its capabilities are extended beyond a single service. Operating with almost entire autonomy, it can change out parts independently to seamlessly transition between modes. Better yet, it can be equipped with a variety of drive systems to extend its uses beyond farmland.
