Graceful amphibious concept car recalls an elegant age of science fiction

We're pretty sure it isn't practical, but Jorge Cross's amphibious vehicle design for the year 2030 fills us with warm fuzzies with its retro sci-fi feel. The three-wheeler tapers to a single ball at its front, which rotates 90° to reveal a propeller or tire, depending on if you're traveling by land or water. It's graceful chassis design was a study for Cross on the theories of hydrodynamics and how they impact a vehicle's shape.

Jorge Cross is a student at the University of Monterrey in Nuevo León, Mexico. Check out the gallery below for more of his amphibious vehicle.
