Razor-thin race car concept needs drool cup holders standard

If this conceptual race car was a reality, you'd find me at the racetrack a lot more often. Sponsored by Honda and the Indy Racing League, the objective of designer Tyler Mars's project was to create a new, eye-catching vehicle for the race. Well, mission accomplished.

The Honda IRL race car rests atop a hydrogen-powered "skate," and its sleek curves and airways reduce drag and help keep everything cool. Arrowhead-shaped stones were the inspiration for its aggressive shape, though it still features the same open-wheeled design that's been made classic in the Indy Racing League.

Tyler Mars received a BFA at the Industrial Design College for Creative Studies in Detroit "Car Capital" Michigan. Check out the gallery below for more of his Honda Indy racer.
