Brazilian designer Eduardo Galvani has put together renderings for a concept car he's dubbed the "Nimbus." It's a bulbous, van-like hybrid that evokes the nostalgia we feel for the classic VW Microbus, but lives in a future world where car design is free to be whimsical — if not a little weird.
Galvani also imagined the features and the details of how the van would operate: a rear engine paired with an electric motor, big knobby semi-cross tires, a tablet-based center panel display, and of course a mini-fridge with room for eight cans of your beverage of choice. Though Galvani says it would weigh about 3,570 pounds, what it really weighs is nothing; it's as solid as the CAD rendering file it was made with, as hefty as our dreams of touring a national park on Mars while ensconced in a glass-and-metal orb.
