Magna Steyr Unleashes Gecko-Inspired Sports Car
Ecological, all weather and sports car are words you may not think to use in the same sentence or idea, but they are exactly what the design team at Magna Steyr set out to create in only six months. Already known throughout the world for its engineering and technical prowess on projects such as the BMW X3, the SAAB 9-3 Cabriolet and the Audi TT, Austrian-based Magna Steyr decided to create a concept car that would draw attention to its talented design team. The MILA (Magna Innovative Lightweight Auto) concept car began as an idea in the design studio then quickly developed over the months into a full-fledged road-ready prototype. Designers, armed with Autodesk® AliasStudio™ software, overcame challenges along the road to realising their vision.
