Modern Lancia Stratos Zero Rendered by Cyberpunk 2077 Car Designer Looks Sharp

Five decades after the 1970 Stratos Zero concept earned itself a spot in the automotive design hall of fame, Pawel Breshke Czyzewski, the digital artist in question, has paid homage to the Italian creation via the supercar showcased in these renderings, which also draws inspiration from the Stratos HF that trailed the Zero concept by one year.

As the designer, whose work we’ve featured in the past, explained to us in an email, this project envisions a supercar that could become a halo vehicle for Lancia rather than strictly reinterpreting the Stratos Zero, so the label found in the tile above is our view rather than that of its creator.

Launched on December 10 last year, the open-world RPG that is Cyberpunk 2077 involves over 60 cars, motorcycles, and heavy-duty/utility vehicles, with the vast majority of these having been styled by the Polish designer.

And once the long hours of

Novelis debuts ‘ultra-high-strength’ aluminum – Recycling Today

Aluminum scrap continues to enjoy strong demand as of mid-February, with one trader who’s based in the Midwest saying primary mills are actively buying on the spot market. He says that is different than in the recent past, when these mills purchased much of their scrap based on contracts.

He attributes the increased spot buying in part to primary mills determining that the spreads in recent years did not make it advantageous to engage in contracts. “Demand is pretty strong as well,” he adds.

The trader says even secondary mills are offering more for aluminum scrap. “That tells me housing starts and automotive are strong,” he says.

One potential concern for aluminum producers and the scrap dealers who supply them is the automotive production problems that have arisen because of the semiconductor shortage. In 2020, the automotive industry experienced fluctuations in production and demand related to the pandemic, reducing its

Life in a pandemic is a unique adventure (let’s be positive) that unfolds new lessons and experiences every day, life after pandemic? – I wonder what that will be like. Designer Nicolas Abdelkader envisions what the post-pandemic world could be like, and he has proposed an innovative project for it – “The Urgency To Slow Down”. The Urgency To Slow Down is basically a collection of photos featuring “augmented planters”, wherein our means of transportation such as planes, ships, cars and etc double up as planters, and are able to hold trees, plants, shrubs, and basically greenery of any sort! He imagines a world wherein walking and bicycles are our preferred means for traveling from one location to another, and in such a world these Automotives are rendered useless!
